Abstract : This report details the performance testing conducted on four types of sealing tape systems for 81-mm mortar ammunition fiber container. The purpose of the test was to explore the possibility of applying only one sealing tape to replace the current double taping system. The test results concluded that both the MIL-T-43036, Type II and I tapes were the best alternate choices of replacements. This improvement could reduce the labor cost for the sealing operation by 50% and provide a substantial amount of savings on the taping materials
