Abstract:

Selected properties of significance to military packaging were determined on thirty-five single and thirty-five composite plastic films. Twenty five of the composite films were fabricated in the Laboratory using commercially available adhesives as the bonding agents. Each of the thirty-five individual films was included in one or more composites. Properties tested include tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, tearing strength, puncture resistance, blocking, grease resistance and moisture vapor transmis sion rates. Almost any property desired is available in plastic films but no single film incorporates all of the features desired for most military packaging applications. Author
