An investigation was carried out to determine the effectiveness of Nomex summer flying coveralls printed with a camouflage pattern as compared with the standard plain olive green coveralls. Laboratory tests indicated that camouflage printing of staple Nomex in a resin-bonded pigment system does not significantly alter the flame-resistant characteristics of Nomex. Field tests with Marine units showed that the camouflage system considered here offered very little advantage over the ordinary olive-green Nomex suits in concealment in green leafy areas and neither suit contributes to concealment in predominantly brown surroundings.
