Versaperm Vapour Permeability measurement

Technical and Laboratory Consultancy


Permeability glitches are probably the world’s biggest cause of waste, failure and problems.  In the UK it costs billions of pounds a year in stale and wasted food alone.  It causes printers to jam, electronics to fail and drugs to lose potency.  It is even the reason why some materials print better than others.  Yet it is widely mis-understood.  

As a world technology leader in this field we offer a twin Permeability Consultancy – one half covering Permeability Materials and Problems, and the other offering a fast-turn-around Laboratory Permeability Measurement service.
