Abstract
In a previous study on the effect of low temperatures on a range of uncoated and coated fabrics, the authors found that the PVC-coated nylon scrims tested were the most sensitive to low temperatures, and for all practical purposes, inappropriate for use at temperatures below 0C. Further work has been carried out on three newly manufactured PVC-coated nylon scrims to determine if such materials are also low-temperature sensitive. The paper reports the results of this work and compares them with that found for the PVC-coated nylon scrims in the earlier study. It was found that the "new" fabrics reacted similarly to those previously tested; however, some of them did have coatings which did not shatter at -40C as some of the previous series had done. Therefore, These would probably be suitable for use at low winter temperatures.
