BS ISO 15372 pdf download Ships and marine technology — Inflatable rescue boats — Coated fabrics for inflatable chambers
This Interational Standard specifies the minimum requirements for coated fabrics, and test procedures for thosefabrics , for use in the construction of inflatable chambers of rescue boats complying with the 1974 Safety of Life atSea Convention(SOLAS), as amended; Chapter l, paragraph 1.2, and Chapter V of the International Life-SavingAppliance Code [iMOResolution MSC.48(66); and the iMO Assembly resolution A.689(17), as amended. Thesecoated fabrics consist of a base textile with a synthetic elastomeric or plastomeric compound applied to one or bothfaces.
Requirements for fabrics for inflatable boats other than SOLAs rescue boats are contained in lSO 6185:1982,Shipbuilding and marine structures — Inflatable boats—Boats made of reinforced elastomers or plastomers.

3.1.1Coated fabric for use in the construction of inflatable chambers of rescue boats shall conform to theperformance requirements specified in Table 1 when type tested in accordance with the specified test proceduresin clause 6.
3.1.2 Type approval of a fabric applies only to a particular colour or range of colours as tested.3.2Base fabric
The base fabric shall be inherently rot-proof.
NOTE Cotton fabric is not considered to be rot-proof.3.3Coating material
Coating materials shall be synthetic elastomeric or plastomeric compounds formulated to conform to the relevantperformance requirements specified in Table 1.
3.4Adhesives and welding
Coated fabrics complying with this International Standard are suitable for use in the manufacture of inflatablerescue boats using adhesives andlor thermal-welding techniques consistent with the fabric manufacturer’instructions.
Manufacturers of rescue boats should confer with fabric proofers concerning specific fabrication techniques forspecific coated fabrics.
