Abstract : The relationship of certain properties of composite plastic films to the properties of the plastic films comprising their structure was studied. It was ascertained that tensile, tearing strength, puncture resistance and moisture vapor transmission rates of composite films can be closely approximated by calculations based on the component properties. The theoretical values are not valid if deteriorating substances are allowed in contact with susceptible plastics during the composite fabrication. (Author)
