    ... thins can by no means become danp even to the slightest degree - how to say it

    Hello everybody!

    I would like to ask you how to express the idea that packaging with welding materials are not permitted to become damp even to the slightest extent.

    1. By no means may packaging with welding materials become damp to the slightest extent.
    2. It is out of the question for packaging with welding materials to become damp to the slightest degree.
    3. For packaging with welding materials to become damp to the slightest degree is out of the question.


    Does any of the three options sound acceptable to you?

    Thank you.

    All you need to say is "Keep dry." Or "keep under controlled conditions"

    Then, define the conditions of storage (controlled temperature and humidity).

    If you must be more emphatic: It is imperative that all contents remain completely dry.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
