ABSTRACT
The article evaluates the flame resistance cotton/synthetic fibers aramids, nylon, glass and polyethylene for military use. Flame-retardant and durable-press finishes were used to produce and treat fabrics designed for military uniforms and tentage. The fabrics evaluated contained approximately 70% or more cotton, thus, the softness, absorbency, breathability and other desirable properties of cotton were adequately preserved. This study concludes that through combining cotton with small percentages of high-tenacity synthetic fibers, either by intimate blending or through core yarn techniques, fabrics of predominantly cotton content and exceptional strength and durability can be produced.
