Military specification packaging can seem tricky to some people. However, it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Especially not if you have a good guide or reach out to a professional who can explain to you all the options and recommend you the ones that suit you best.
Most professionals handle a wide selection of papers and film with VCI to be used in applications of military packaging, whether it is for weapon packaging or for the transporting of critical supplies in boxes to the battlefield. All the products for military packaging are designed to thoroughly fulfill the most strict production requirements, from protection against long term corrosion in metallic materials to protection of the contents in the most inhospitable weather conditions. These products had fulfilled this normative for decades, and today the list of products qualified by the defense department of the US includes products with the following specifications: MIL-PRF-3420 and MIL-PRF-22019/22020.
