Abstract:

An investigation was made to evaluate the suitability of using various submethods with volatile-corrosion-inhibitor-treated materials in the packaging of small arms components. Packages were stored under two conditions 1in an outdoor shed to simulate minimum warehouse storage and 2in a static humidity cabinet to simulate tropic storage. Heat-sealable polyster film with volatile-corrosion-inhibitor innerwrap provided satisfactory protection in the humidity cabinet for one year. Results of this investigation indicate that packaging submethods other than those specified in MIL-I-8574 can be satisfactorily used with VCI preservatives. Test procedures are described and results given.
