Case study mil spec-packaging

  1. 1. CASE STUDY: Mil-Spec Packaging For U.S. Army Unit Vehicles and TrailerFleetThe right military packaging materials can determine an items safety and integrity. A U.S. Armyunit was deployed overseas. They had 23 five ton vehicles, and 10 trailers assigned to their unitthat were not sent with the unit. Therefore, these very expensive vehicles would be leftpractically unattended for up to two years with very little preventive maintenance, and there wasno covered area to place this equipment.Each vehicle of the fleet needed a strong barrier from the adverse elements that would last anextended period of time. The protective barrier must also be able to protect against moistureleakage caused by snow and rain. Corrosion prevention was also a major priority due to the longperiod of time the vehicles would be out of commission and their strategic importance.Each vehicle was sealed completely inside its own moisture barrier bag. Desiccant was placedinside the bag to remove any moisture in order to prevent corrosion or mildew. Then, a heavyduty, reinforced, custom made tarp was placed over the barrier bag to give added protectionagainst snow and high winds up to 80 mph. This protection was guaranteed for up to two years.Our onsite team completed the job within 4 days at a cost of approximately $1200 per vehicle.Moisture Barrier Bags & Moisture Barrier Materials for Government Specification (Mil-SpecPackaging) • MIL-PRF-131 • MIL-PRF-22191 and MIL-DTL-117 • MIL-PRF-121 • Desiccants: Mil-D-3464Greaseproof, Waterproof, Flexible Barrier MaterialMil-PRF-121 Type I Class 1 Flat Kraft/Poly Heavy DutyGrade AMil-PRF-121 Type I Class 2 Crepe Kraft/Poly Heavy DutyGrade AMil-PRF-121 Type II Class 1 Flat Kraft/Poly Medium DutyGrade AMil-PRF-121 Type II Class 2 Crepe Kraft/Poly Medium DutyGrade AWaterproof, Vaporproof Flexible Barrier MaterialsMil-PRF-131 Film/Foil/Poly - available in Type IClass 1 reinforced Tyvek
