The abilities of E-glass and N-glass fibres and of composites based on them to withstand degradative effects in boiling water or in boiling aqueous solutions of HCl (10%), NaOH (0.5%) and NaCl (10%) have been evaluated on a comparative basis by following the loss or retention of strength properties (tensile/flexural) with the time of the respective degradative exposure. The degradative effects under different chemical environments for the composites were also analysed with the help of SEM micrographs of the composites before and after the specific degradative treatments. Analysis of strength properties and retention of strength and of the micrographs clearly indicates that N glass is highly superior to E glass, and the former imparts a much higher order of stability to composites in different chemical environments despite substantial initial advantages in the strength properties for E-glass fibre and composites based on this fibre.
