Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to develop shade standards and eight tolerances of Air Force Blue 1084 in polyester wool fabric conforming to Type III of Specification MIL-C-21115B or a blend modification that would match standard all-wool fabric in Blue 1084. The composite number of shades to produce the required color was established through various laboratory procedures. The methods of preparing the fabric before dyeing, piece dyeing of standard and tolerances, finishing procedures and a laboratory analysis are included. The feasibility of piece dyeing polyester wool fabric conforming to Specification MIL-C-21115B is practical under the conditions presented in the report. However, small preproduction yardage should be dyed and tested before proceeding with production. Author
