    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes requirements for 13 types of laminated sheet of woven glass fabric bonded with synthetic resin. Does not cover laminated sheets prepared by bonding together previously prepared thinner laminated sheets. Covers definitions, classification, colour, appearance, flatness, nominal thickness and permissible deviations, machinability and physical and electrical properties. Includes several appendices and tables.
