Abstract:

The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center and School USA DACS, Evaluation Division SMCAC-DEV, has been tasked by the U.S. Army Armanent Research, Development and Engineering Center SMCAR-AEP, Picatinny Arsenal, NJ, to test a plastic pallet made from a General Electric AZDEL material. This plastic material is currently being used in plastic automotive application and in special designed rackable pallets. The sample pallet was designed for a 2,500 pound load weight. It was loaded to 2,340 pounds of inert ammunition containers and subjected to MIL-STD-1660 testing procedures. The result of this engineering test showed that the AZDEL pallet, after modification, could be considered for transportation of ammunition.
