Abstract : The U.S. Army Defense Ammunition Center (DAC), Validation Engineering Division (SIOAC-DEV), was tasked by U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) to perform salt-fog accelerated-aging testing on 1 - 1/4-inch steel strapping to determine whether Delta, style III, painted seals are a suitable alternative to currently utilized seals. It was concluded that the Delta, style III, painted seal meets the minimum requirements of ASTM Designation: D 3953-91 and performs as well as currently utilized seals.
