The purpose of this specification is to allow procurement of a defined material corresponding to statistically derived material properties published in CMH-17. These materials are designed specifically for vacuum bag autoclave cure. These materials are intended for use in laminate applications with a service temperature up to 180 °F. They are typically used in structural applications requiring high strength and stiffness.
Widely distributed and available industry material specifications are required for procurement of composite materials whose allowables data is published in CMH-17.
