Abstract
The need for a correlation between the amount of a substance added to a composite plastic material and its effect on the cubical coefficient of thermal expansion, or cubit expansivity, of the composite mixture is discussed, experimental values for the cubic expansivities of several composite plastics made from a thermoplastic resin, an inert salt filler, and various percentages of aluminum are reported. Four hypothetical correlations are tested, two of which are reported to give calculated values within 1% of those observed. Apparatus and procedures for obtaining these results are also described in detail.
