Abstract
The effect of low temperatures on the shape of the load-elongation curve, the initial modulus, breaking load, percent elongation and work to rupture of 13 coated and uncoated fabrics was examined. It was found that the cotton/synthetic blends were least sensitive to low temperatures, the nylon fabrics, be they coated with polyurethane or neoprene, or uncoated, were more sensitive, and the PVC-coated nylon scrims, the most sensitive, and for all practical purposes, completely inappropriate for use at temperatures below 0 degree C.
