W D Dittmer, P R Hoffman: 992. Boron Composites – Development and Application Status. 1973.



Boron composites are in production use on the F-14 and F-IS and appear in every new aircraft design. Like metals, there are a variety of forms (boron epoxy, boron polyimide, boron aluminum) available to best suit each application. Properties have improved and U.S. prices are now near the $100/lb level with further decreases assured. New product forms and design concepts offer simple, practical cost effective means of using these high performance materials in a variety of aircraft and turbine engine structures.
