Abstract:

A drop test program was initiated to establish the statistical validity of the temperature effect on foamed plastic containers. The key facets of the proposed research were Identification of an experimental design which would be capable of statistically verifying the temperature effect Pilot study development for experimental design verification The three temperature levels to be investigated are -65F, 70F, and 160F Primary candidate cushioning materials are polyurethene foam, both polyester and polyether vinyl foam rubberized hair polyethylene foam, both plain and cross-linked Minicel and polystyrene foam.
