SHEETS FOR THE PROTECTION OF LOADS. ASSEMBLY AND REPAIR OF COATED FABRICS
The Committee has continued its work on sheets for the protection of loads. It has studied: the assembly of coated fabrics; means of securing; possible methods of repair. The results obtained have prompted the Committee: 1. to reject chlorosulphonated polyethylene-based coatings which can be neither welded nor stuck. 2. to advocate the high-frequency welding process for the assembly and repair of fabrics coated with a plasticised P.V.C. based product. 3. to recommend the hot or cold sticking process for fabrics coated with polychloroprene-based products, provided that the adhesives are chosen beforehand. 4. to consider the P.V.C. coated fabrics and the polychloroprene coated fabrics as equivalent on the basis of laboratory tests, since neither shows any marked superiority over the other as regards general properties or assembly and repair.
