[Accoutrements] Gutta-percha and Indian rubber canteens

Hello,

I am from France and doing some research on the US Army 1816-1861.
I am looking for any info on the gutta-percha and Indian rubber canteens issued on trial in the 1850s : descriptions, eventually pictures, to which units they were issued, when, &c.
Any help would be gratefully received.
