Project Description: The goal of this project is to develop a fabric that meets criteria to make economical wall tent panels with specific performance criteria. The fabric needs to be waterproof, mildew resistant, fire retardant and meet a minimum specification for tear strength. The project team will work with a range of fabric producers to characterize materials that meet the minimum specifications, creating samples for sew testing and determining the most cost effective fabrics for the required performance criteria.
