The results reported in this paper deal with composites made with a non-toxic, water-based, inorganic polymer that not only offers high temperature resistance but also is environmentally friendly. Laminate composites and sandwich panels made with various types of fibers utilizing this new resin were evaluated for mechanical properties at various temperatures. This paper presents results pertaining to: (i) laminate composites made with glass, carbon, and steel mesh reinforcements, (ii) durability under wet-dry conditions, and (iii) behavior of fiber-reinforced sandwich structures. The results indicate that the inorganic resin has excellent potential in the composites industry.
