We determined threshold values for the annual fluence of atomic oxygen and the ratio of the density of a solar ultraviolet vacuum flux to the density of a supersonic flow of atomic oxygen. The values characterize the synergetic effect on mass losses for polyimide films which are spacecraft structural materials
