This document specifies a method for determining the ability of fabrics coated with rubber or plastics to
resist the effect of low temperature when subjected to bending at specified temperatures after definite
periods of exposure. This method is applicable to material with a thickness within the range 0,1 mm to
2,2 mm. For materials of greater thickness than this, modifications to the standard equipment apply
(see 9.2, third paragraph).
Because fabrics coated with rubber or plastics are used in different applications requiring low
temperature flexing, no general relationship between this test and service performance can be
given or implied.
