Abstract : Normal and accelerated storage tests showed that the materials of the Coverall CW Protective would remain in serviceable condition for at least five years of storage under temperate conditions. Deterioration of the chemical barrier in hot and humid conditions was attributed to hydrolysis of polyurethane. Packaging to protect the materials from atmospheric pollutants and high humidity is discussed. Tests of the moisture-proof, dehydrated, packaging specified for this item showed that it was adequate to ensure satisfactory storage under adverse conditions. The feasibility of preparing garments for packaging by oven-drying was established. (Author)
