Abstract

Further referring to your favor of the 11th May, the four samples numbered #586, #585, #581 and #587 are fairly good as regardless non-inflammability, but #586 we notice is somewhat brittle and #587 is too soft. As regards sample #568, this is very good for non-inflammability, but extremely brittle. #584 is hardly as good for non-inflammability as those mentioned, but the coating is certainly the best so far as flexibility is concerned. We will have all of the samples placed in water, and will report to you to-mmorow on tests we make. It is somewhat difficult to express an opinion as to which of these forms is most suitable for commercial use, as this point we can only decide by your first sending us samples of the material and the costs of same.
