Abstract:

Eighteen transparent plastic films of various thicknesses were made into bags. Bare steel panels, panels over-wrapped in vinylidene chloride copolymer, panels coated with an emulsifiable rust preventive and panels protected with VCI materials were sealed in the bags. These packs were then subjected to fresh water immersion, static and dynamic humidity, cyclic exposure and one year of indoor storage tests to determine the suitability of plastic bags for packaging applications. The control packs, after one year of indoor exposure at ambient temperature, provided adequate protection withour the use of VCI materials.
