New and Proposed Cryogenic Temperature Resistant Plastics 660638

The author discusses the need for cryogenic temperature resistant plastic materials in the space program. The selection of a plastic material for cryogenic application is dependent on the cryogenic fluid with which it will come in contact.
Problem areas discussed are insulation of cryogenic materials, adhesives used on plastics, use of seals and gaskets, and the expulsion of cryogenic propellant in a zero gravity environment.
Through this type research appears to have limited application in the aerospace industry, future generations may benefit materially from the work being done.
