PERFORMANCE OF PLASTIC PACKAGING FOR HAZARDOUS MATERIALS TRANSPORTATION, PART 2: PERMEATION
Permeation as a mode of failure for plastics packagings is discussed. The materials properties which determine permeation performance are defined. Measurement methods aimed at determining values for the materials properties are surveyed. A "matrix" scheme is introduced for evaluating the risks associated with the permeation failure of a package containing a hazardous materials lading. Permeation factors influencing reuse of plastic containers are described. Laboratory data from an evaluation of a simple method of test for estimating the intrinsic property of a lading to permeate polyethylene is presented. /Author/
