Adding water or petrol to electronics, or a variety of other maritime products is a recipe for disaster. So it’s critically important to ensure that liquids, and the invasive vapours they give off, can not get into any components, electronics or enclosures.

The problem is that many of the seals which keep out water or hydrocarbons as liquids allow their vapours to pass through virtually unhindered – often rendering the seals virtually useless! 

Versaperm Limited, a technology leader in vapour permeability measurements, has introduced a fast, simple and efficient way to test this for water vapour, hydrocarbon vapour and most other gases including Hydrogen, Oxygen, Solvents and CO2.

The Versaperm instrument was purpose designed for its task and can give results that are accurate in the parts per million range 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 – whereas conventional gravimetric measurements take several days and are significantly less accurate.

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