Field trials of the knitted paper sandbag containing an organo-zinc fungicide and six other sandbag types conducted by the Australian Military Forces in temperate, semi-tropical, and tropical environments are described. Data obtained from these tests show that nylex, a bag having a nylon scrim laminated between two vinyl films, had superior resistance properties but was too slippery to stack well. Knitted paper with an organo-zinc fungicide MIL-B-52231A and jute burlap with an organo-zinc copper fungicide MIL-B-12233A, the control sandbag, had parallel performances and followed nylex in overall performance. Three Japanese polypropylene sandbags, containing no UV inhibitors, performed poorly. Author, modified-PL
