ABSTRACT
This article studies the effects of humidity on packaged goods. Maintaining proper relative humidity (RH) through the entire cycle of transportation, storage, sheeting, coating, printing, die-cutting, and finishing will have a substantial impact on the moisture content of the materials you coat, print, and finish. Heated indoor air in plants often is desert dry in winter, with RH often dropping to less than 10%. Ideal humidity for converting is 45%-55%, at a temperature of 68-72 deg E. It is hard to maintain this level of humidity in heated winter air, and in most plants, adding moisture to the air is necessary to reduce production and quality problems and improve indoor air quality.
