HOW TO GET TESTY WITH US
Vapour permeability and leakage rate testing for the adhesives industry
Water vapour permeability technology
experts Versaperm are offering a fast and economical testing service to
determine the often critical permeability and leakage rate of adhesives,
mastics and other sealing materials.
Vapour permeability is often
a crucial test in an adhesive's or mastic's performance as it can seriously
affect the properties of the combined product.
The Versaperm service is unusual
in that it cannot only measure both high and low leakage rates very accurately,
but can also measure the overall permeability of bonded laminates. Most
commonly these are under 50mm thick but the company also has a range of
specialist equipment for measuring almost any thickness of material.
The company uses its own-developed
WVTR (Water Vapour Transmission) equipment, which can produce accurate
and reliable results to better than one part per million - sometimes in
the parts per hundreds of million range. With some materials these results
can be achieved in as little as 30 minutes, but even with hard to measure
foils, results can normally be turned around in a day. Sensitivities are
in the range 0.05 - 3200gm/m2/day.
As well as standard testing
on products such as adhesives and coatings, Versaperm has the facility
to test a wide range of materials and objects such as films and foils,
dry coatings, pharmaceutical packaging, bottles, small industrial objects
and containers, large industrial objects and even, once, a pizza!
