The possibility of increasing the anhydride epoxy bonding agent impregnability of glass fabric, made from aluminum borosilicate glass, by introducing adhesives into the serially produced lubricant 4s is studied. A wide range of wetting agents, produced by different global manufacturers for fiber and organosilicon coupling agents, was tested by determining the bonding agent impregnability over the height in a capillary. The impregnability of reinforcing glass fabric was increased considerably by improving the lubricant as well as counter-modification of the bonding agent.
