The second group of packages enhanced this single cardboard layer with a plastic bag. One box in this category featured an unsealed thin plastic liner, and the other cardboard box included a tape-sealed plastic bag. The third group of packages added a second layer of cardboard to the design, with the bags positioned between the two cardboard layers. This group also contained two package varieties: a double-box with a thicker, tape-sealed plastic bag, and a double box with a foil-plastic laminate bag containing a zip closure. Both of the packages in the third group performed better than the other packaging configurations, but out of all of the configurations, only the final package - the double box with the foil-plastic laminate bag - kept levels in the test chamber below all workplace exposure regulations and guidelines.
