MIL-PRF-131K Class 2
The military uses a wide variety of packaged products in the field. However, because military applications often expose these products to challenging conditions, the United States government has strict requirements for its packaging. Our MIL-PRF-131K Class 2 packaging is a flexible, heat-sealable material with kraft backing designed to meet the specifications outlined by the U.S. Department of Defense.
Ideal for protecting lightweight contents from water vapor, MIL-PRF-131K Class 2 barrier material is used in naval, naval aviation and other military applications. At Caltex Plastics, we offer MIL-PRF-131K Class 2 material as roll stock or as custom-made packages in side-gussett, bottom-gussett or T-Seal bag configurations.
What Protection Properties Does MIL-PRF-131K Class 2 Packaging Provide?
MIL-PRF-131K is a set of specifications established by the U.S. Department of Defense that impacts the types of packaging materials used in military applications. Class 2 MIL-PRF-131K packaging material is made for limited military use. Our flexible, heat-sealable Class 2 packaging is defined by the following protective properties:
- Low moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR)
- Greaseproof material that shows no delamination, leakage or embrittlement when exposed to oil
- Faraday Cage shielding to protect products from static charge
- High tear and puncture resistance
To ensure our MIL-PRF-131K Class 2 packaging meets military expectations for performance, we test it rigorously in a laboratory setting before bringing it to market.
What Can You Use MIL-PRF-131K Class 2 Packaging For?
Our MIL-PRF-131K Class 2 packaging is made for limited use, which means it should only be used to hold contents weighing 10 pounds or less. Though this option provides less heavy-duty protection compared to MIL-PRF-131K Class 1 and Class 3 materials, Class 2 packaging is ideal for preserving and storing light products that require protection from water vapor.
Due to its low MVTR, our MIL-PRF-131K Class 2 packaging is ideal for naval and naval aviation applications, since packages in these settings are exposed to high moisture and salt levels during transportation and transfer at sea. You can also use MIL-PRF-131K Class 2 packaging to store printed circuit boards, integrated circuits and other products sensitive to static charge.
