Versaperm Vapour Permeability measurement


Electronics and Water Don't Mix the potential failure of marine enclosures

Marine Permeability measuremeny

Mixing advanced electronics with rough seas is a potential recipe for disaster. Moisture, usually in the form of water vapour is omnipresent and can permeate its way in to even the seemingly most waterproof electronics. Many of the materials that form an effective barrier to liquids, are nearly useless when it comes to water vapour causing electronic failures and disasters when they do.

Versaperm's specialist vapour permeability measurement equipment is a fast, simple and efficient way to check this – for both the materials used and the finished "waterproof" products.  The system can optionally work with most gasses including, hydrocarbons, solvents, CO2 and virtually all other vapours commonly in the marine environment.

The Versaperm instrument was purpose designed for this task and gives results that are accurate in the parts per million range, (PPM) for most samples and vapours.  It can cope with several material samples, seals or enclosures at a time, often give a reading in as little as 30 minutes –conventional gravimetric measurements take several days and are significantly less accurate.

Versaperm also offers a laboratory service for companies that only need to test samples for permeability on an irregular basis.
