For increasing the insulating proper-ties and the reliability of composite materials due to environmental aging, the electrical and mechanical characteristics of moisture absortion specimens and moisture desorption specimens were investigated. After moisture absorption wt% and moisture desorption wt% increased with time, a state of saturation arrived subsequent to a constant time. Moisture absorption constants with the layers of glass fiber showed 0.0117 in 1 layer, 0.0123 in 2 layers and 0.0152 in 3 layers. Electrical and mechanical characteristics dropped significantly with moisture absorbing in composite materials. Although moisture dried completly at 70.deg. C, it is impossible to obtain the electrical and mechanical characteristics before moisture absorption. Many defaults by moisture in composite materials exist at interface between epoxy matrix and filler.
