From Snow Fences to Flags on the Moon

Record #:
Burlington Industries Inc. of Greensboro makes over seventy-five different types of fabric, none of which are used for apparel. Among them are fabrics used in typewriters, tires, snow fencing, flags, and even parts of blimps. Although some of the fabrics are bullet resistant and used in police vests, the material is not bullet proof and company officials shy from saying that it is.
