This standard establishes the methods, materials, and techniques to be employed in the formation of bonded palletized unit loads of military supplies which are adaptable to unit loading. The methods prescribed herein are to be utilized with the standard, general purpose, 40- by 48-inch pallet conforming to MIL-P-15011 or NN-P-71. However, the various methods of bonding and types of storage aids may be modified for use with other size pallets. This standard will not be used for the palletization of ammunition, explosives, or semiperishable subsistence unless specifically prescribed by the cognizant technical activity. (Ammunition unit loads shall be in accordance with MIL-STD-1660, while semiperishable subsistence unit loads shall be in accordance with MIL-L-35078.)

The contents of this standard apply to contracts requiring the preparation and shipment of bonded palletized unit loads for DOD facilities. It is also applicable for the movement of materiel between or within the military services.

The guidance herein may be applied independently or collectively. Variations from the load types or in the application and use of bonding methods and storage aids to meet unusual requirements are permitted but should be coordinated with and approved by the requiring agency or activity prior to implementation.

The applicable loading patterns are listed numerically in figure 51 of appendix B. Determination of the applicable pattern shall be accomplished by referring to table III of appendix B. Loads will be tied by reversing the pattern for each layer.

To accommodate the requirements of DOD Directive 4120.18, Metric System of Measurement, two tables describing English-metric conversion applicable to this standard are provided, beginning on page two. For convenience in calculation, metric equivalents are expressed to two decimal places (nearest hundredth), wherever practical. TABLE I. Standard English-metric equivalents

Volume: 1 fluid ounce = 29.57 milliliters 1 pint = 0.47 liter 1 quart = 0.95 liter 1 gallon = 3.79 liters 1 cubic foot = 0.03 cubic meter NOTE: To change cubic inches to cubic feet, divide by 1728. Weight: 1 ounce (avoirdupois) = 28.35 grams 1 pound (avoirdupois) = 453.59 grams, 0.454 kilogram 2.2 pounds = 1.00 kilogram Length: 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters, 25.4 millimeters 1 foot = 30.48 centimeters, 0.305 meter 39.37 inches = 1.00 meter 3.28 feet = 1.00 meter NOTE: Centimeters times 25.00 feet = 7.625 meters 10 equals millimeters 50.00 feet = 15.25 meters (cm × 10 = mm). Temperature conversion: To change degrees Celsius (C) to degrees Fahrenheit (F), multiply temperature by 1.8 and add 32 degrees F. To change degrees Fahrenheit (F) to degrees Celsius (C), subtract 32 from the temperature and divide by 1.8. Degrees Fahrenheit = Degrees Celsius 0 −18 32 0 212 100
