Abstract: he composites were exposed to moist/thermal environments at 70°C and 95% RH. Some of the specimens were exposed to -4°C for 24 h. When the absorbed moisture becomes frozen, the detrimental effect on ILSS values is greater than that of composites with only moisture. Secondly, the higher loading speeds result in less deleterious effect on ILSS values of glass/epoxy composites with frozen moisture. Finally, a thermal spike at 250°C of hygrothermally conditioned composites may result in only desorption of absorbed moisture and thus result in less deterioration of the ILSS values
