Abstract:

Cottonnylon blends differing in the proportion of cotton to nylon, the degree of interfiber intimacy and the geometric distribution of cotton to nylon were evaluated for rot-resistance in the soil burial test. Additional soil burial data were obtained from the same blends following treatment with either copper 8-quinolinolate or methylolmelamine resin. All materials were subjected to 100 hours of full cycle exposure in a twin arc weatherometer.
