Abstract : Tests were conducted on five types of membranes to determine their resistance to heat exposure and their ability to retain their original strength after such exposure. Results indicated that for all membranes tested, both vinyl-coated and neoprene-coated, the majority of samples tested withstood temperatures of 500 F with only small losses in strength. Over-all, the neoprene-coated membranes withstood higher temperatures than the vinyl-coated membranes. (Author)
