Clay / Tyvek bags meets Method II packaging standards described in Mil-P-116-E, which covers the basic requirement of military packaging methods of preservation. This involves packaging an item inside a sealed waterproof and moisture vapor-proof container with the inclusion of a desiccant to prevent rust, mildew or corrosion damage. In Method II packaging, the package is maintained at a safe humidity below 40% RH during the normal storage period of 18 months to 2 years.
