Plastic Sheet, Acrylic, Heat Resistant

q:alification. The acrylic sheets furnished under 
this specification sh311 be products which are qualified for listing on 
the applicable qualified products list ac chg time set for opening of 
bids. (See 4.3 and 6.3.) 
Materials. The plastic sheet shall be an acrylic 
type. The nanuEactucer is given a vide range in the selection Of mater— 
ials and unufacturing processes provided the furnished product is a 
transparent acrylic conforming to all the requirements of this specifi— 
cation and is suitable for the intended use (6. i) 
Color. Unless otherwise specified by the procuring 
activity the naterial shall be colorless. 
Diænsions. Dimensions of sheets shall be as speci— 
fied by applicable drawings or specifications. Unless otherwise speci— 
fled on the contract or order, a tolerance Of ±0.063 inch (1.6 m) will 
be allowed on length and width dinensions at 23±1 oc (73.5±2 OF) . 
Thickness. The actual thickness of the sheet at any 
point shall be within the tolerance specified in Table I. Thickness 
variations of sheets not included in table I shall not exceed the toler— 
ances for the next greater thickness listed in table I. 
Specific gravity. The specific gravity of the condi- 
tioned material shall be I. 1920.01 when determined as specified in 
Water absorption. When determined in accordance with 
4.6. I, che water absorption of che conditioned material shall not exceed 
values given in table I. 
Rate of burning. tested as specified in 4.6. I, 
rate of burning for a 0.500 inch (12.7 m) width of material shall 
exceed the values given in table I. 
Thermal exoansion. The coefficent of thermal expan- 
'ion shall not exceed 0.00010 per degree centigrade (0.000055 per degree 
Fahrenheit) when tested in accordance with 4.6.2. 
Formability. Formability shall be determined as 
specified in 4.6.3. 
Materials 0.500 inch (12.7 m) and less in thickness. 
After heating in accordance with the manufacturer's suggested procedures, 
the material shall be suitable for forming into hemispheric shapes with 
the outside diamet•er of 10 inches (25.4 cm) and a draw of at least 4.5 
inches (11.5 cm). 
Materials over 0.500 inch (12.7 m) in thickness. 
When heated in accprdance with the instructions furnished by the manu- 
facturer, the sheets shall be quitable for bending into cylindrical 
forms of the radius given in table I without the appearance of crazing 
or other surface irregularities after accelerated weathering, 
Internal strain. The dimensional change after test— 
ing in 4.6.4 shall not exceed I percent. Large values of dimensional 
change indicate the relief of high internal stress.

Microsoft Excel Spreadsheets

FREE ANALYSIS SPREADSHEETS 3 Over the last 10 years we have developed hundreds of spreadsheet tools to help us with our structural analysis work. We have made these available through the Abbott Aerospace web site and the XL Viking project. We have now brought them into the technical library. They have been updated, improved and the collection has been expanded to cover more analysis methods than ever before.

The XL-Viking Add-In for Excel

XL-Viking 2 We created the XL-Viking Excel add-in to satisfy our own need to make Excel a better engineering tool. XL-Viking shows your Excel Formula in a way that makes sense and brings essential new functionality to Microsoft Excel by providing an additional user interface and easy to use functions.

The Indispensable Tool For Engineers, Mathematicians, Scientists, Accountants and Teaching Professionals!


Technical Papers & Reports

This is our collection of public domain references. All of the material we make available has been placed in the public domain by the authors/owners. If you believe this is not the case and any of the library material is not in the public domain please let us know. If you have any reference material that you would like to see included in the library we would love to hear from you.

Market Analysis and Market Information

Our newest addition to the library is an on-going series of articles on the aircraft and aerospace market. These are part quantitative and part qualitative and introduce a new aspect to the competencies within Abbott Aerospace.
