Abstract : In November 1991, Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center (OC-ALC) requested the Air Force Packaging Evaluation Activity (AFPEA) evaluate a new concept of a heavy corrugated high-density polyethylene material as an alternative to wood material for PPP-B-601 containers. This material is waterproof and could save in weight upon deployment. AFPEA performed testing in February 1992 on three different sizes of the plastic corrugated containers. All three passed the Level B rough handling and vibration tests, and with some modification, the containers passed the superimposed load test. AFPEA recommends the container as an alternative to PPP-B-601 boxes with the changes listed in the recommendations.
