Abstract:

White cotton fabrics treated to contain 9 to 12 methylolmelamine resin, which should be sufficient for optimum long-term environmental protection, were subjected to extended soil burial and outdoor weathering exposure. Fabrics treated to contain 9 to 12 methylolmelamine resin by the Arigal process and the dry-cure process of Berard were quite resistant to microbiological degradation during extended soil burial. Despite differences between processes, all treated fabrics containing 9 to 12 resin weathered excellently outdoors.
