Abstract:

This report discusses the evaluation of various fire retardent treated 100 cotton denim fabrics manufactured from open-end spun yarns. The open-end denim fabrics were compared to the currently specified ring-spun denim for use in the Navys shipboard utility trousers. Based on laboratory and wear test results, the use of open-end denim material in the manufacture of Navy utility trousers would not compromise quality, and would serve to broaden the source of supply.
