Vapour Permeability testing for Electronics and Enclosures 

Electronics and enclosures - permeability measurements

One of the big reasons why electronics and products fail is water vapour seeping in - creating short circuits and corrosion.  It not only works its way in past seals, but it also permeates through the very material of a protective electronic enclosure and insulation as well.   It has caused everything from a failed computer to a crashed missile - and in most applications that’s just not good enough!


Now, thanks to Versaperm, measuring permeability has become a lot easier, not just for enclosures and seals but even for material samples, finished components and even coatings.

The latest equipment can measure in the parts per million range (parts per billion for some gases and materials).  And, whereas conventional techniques can take several days, Versaperm’s advanced products and sensor options can take from as little as 30 minutes for some materials.  Results are reliable, repeatable and accurate.

The meter can be configured to measure permeability not only for water vapour, but also for hydrocarbons and most other gases or vapours.  It is easy to use, needs no re-calibration and, at most, minimal training.

As well as manufacturing the instruments, Versaperm offers a permeability measurement laboratory service for companies that need to test samples on an irregular basis.
