MIL Specs and Federal Specifications for Plastics and Composites

Specifications for the plastics used by the U.S. military and other U.S. government agencies

MIL Specs (military specifications) and Fed Specs (federal specifications) describe the plastics and composites that are used in the construction of equipment for the United States government. These specifications define acceptable mechanical, electrical, and thermal property values for a wide variety of thermoplastics and thermosets.

MIL Specs and Federal Specifications often include grades, shape conversion processes, material test report requirements, and appropriate uses for the plastics being described.

Curbell Plastics can provide manufacturers’ certificates of conformance and material property test reports documenting that our products meet the specifications that appear on many drawings for plastic parts used by the U.S. military and other government agencies.
