an investigation.

A'EROIOND IN ACTION-Drops of water poured onto material treated with Aerobond cluster together but do
not wnIetrate into the fabric. Aerobond is a wartime development of Prof. Floyd E. Bartell, of the University's
-epartment of Chenmistry. Used during the war to provide army clothing which was resistant to both cold and
water and still remained light-weight, Aerobond is expected to have far-reaching, effects upon the textile and
clothing industries. -Daily Staff Photos

THIS PARKA LOOKS HEAVY, BUT IT ISN'T-This piece of clothing for the Army was treated with Aero- y
bond, a wartime discovery of Prof. Floyd E. Bartell, of the University's Department of Chemistry. Aerobond
makes a fabric resistant to both cold and water but still permits the garment to be light-weight. Prof. Bartell
is shown adjusting the parka to his laboratory assistant, Robert Smith, of Port Huron, Mich., a veteran of four
years in the Navy air corps. Smith wore the suit in the laboratory without the least discomfort even though
the-roomn was moderately warm. Aerobond is unique in that it permits clothing tq "breathe"-that is, perspira-
tion can escape but water and cold are held out. Aerobond was perfected in the closing months of the war.
Uniforms made of Aerobond fabric were first used by the armed services in the heat and rain of Okinawa and
have been ordered for use in Alaska to protect Army personnel from Arctic snow and cold. In addition to the
qualities the Army desired, Aerobond is sound-deadening and can be made into sheets of any dimensions for
use in cushions and insulating material. Clothing utilizing Aerobond probably will be on the market in a few
months. Life suits utilizing Aerobond were tested in a University swimming pool and limited supplies of boots,
raincoats, lifebelts and other clothing were tested under actual battle conditions shortly before the war ended.

APPLYING AEROBOND TO FABRIC-Prof. Floyd E. Bartell, of the
University's Department of Chemistry, is shown operating the pilot
plant in a University laboratory in which Aerobond was first used to
treat clothing for the Army. Aeroband makes clothing waterproof and
cold resisiting with the advantage that light weight fabrics can he used.
Prof. Bartell is shown spreading Aerobond on fabric
