Permeability Consultancy To solve the UK’s two Billion Pounds a year problem

Vapour permeability problems cost the UK over two Billion pounds per year!  Wasted food, ruined electronics, damaged equipment, spoiled medicines and a wide range of problems affect almost every industry – from cornflakes to computers.   

Versaperm is a world technology leader and runs a permeability problem-solving consultancy along with its testing laboratory and manufacturing facility.  It has helped and advised companies worldwide.

Common problems include food freshness and shelf-life issues, electronics failures, drugs that lose potency, packaging problems, seals that fail and machinery that jams. The service was designed to help and advise companies resolve these and other problems. 

Permeability problems are widespread and often both the cause and solutions seem to be counter-intuitive”, said Technical Director Chris Roberts, “for example, you may think a product made from silicone would be waterproof – and it is against water as a liquid.  But water as a vapour can pass straight through it almost as if it wasn’t there.”

The Versaperm Consultancy specialises in the practical use of modern materials, methods and laminated production to resolve real-world problems.  The company has several decades of technical experience and is usually able to provide answers quickly and efficiently.

The consultancy also advises on materials testing and, if required, can design and custom produce equipment to meet specific needs. The company operates across commercial, industrial, National Standards Laboratories and academic areas.

Lastly, the consultancy offers a quick turn-around vapour permeability measurement service where samples can often be tested within just 24 hours.
