Research was conducted to investigate and develop composite materials for use as static and dynamic seals at temperatures ranging from Cryogenic to 2000 F, and at pressures up to 5000 psi. Emphasis is being placed on dynamic seals for rotating and reciprocating shafts covering the temperature range -320 to 1500 F and on low temperature, low clamping force static seals for sealing the cabins of space vehicles. Efforts included high temperature evaluation of large static rings, cryogenic evaluations of static seals, dynamic fixture design, and sample preparation for the determination of mechanical properties at elevated temperatures.
