Low cost polyurethane laminate tent materials are designed to solve the cold crack issue with PVC tent fabrics. The use of novel construction of urethane/textile laminates offers a breakthrough in environmental durability over current offerings. This new laminate configuration provides for a new class of economical lightweight shelters with extended operating capability. Using a composite textile reinforcement system reduces coating cost and complexity at the same time optimizes for both tear and tensile properties. This composite textile is matched with advanced coating designs to yield excellent spectral and flame performance at reduced mass, while remaining low cost.
