The original intent of this project was to research only anti-static cushioning materials for use in ammunition containers and to develop dynamic tests along with a performance database for use in cushion design. The project expanded into cushioning that also does not contain ozone-depleting and flammable substances. In the past few years, foam cushioning suppliers have been producing non-shipping, storing, or handling a container. This project was expanded to include non-zone depleting and non-flammable blowing agents to protect the environment along with making it safe to ship, store, or handle the ammunition containers.
