Permeability related problems cost UK businesses several billion pounds every year.  Complications are extraordinarily diverse and range from missiles that crash to cornflakes and pizzas that go soggy through to drugs that lose potency, food that spoils, equipment that jams and electronic systems that fail. 

Versaperm, a world technology and manufacturing leader in the field, has developed a "Materials' Permeability Consultancy" to help and advise people resolve these and other problems.  The service is backed by an in-house laboratory facility.

"Permeability issues can be difficult and counter-intuitive to fix", said Technical Director Chris Roberts "for example, Silicone is great barrier against liquid water - but it is virtually useless for water vapour - which can simply pass through it almost as if it wasn't there."

The Versaperm Consultancy specialises in the practical use of materials to resolve real-world problems and the company has many decades of technical experience in the areas. It is usually able to provide answers quickly and efficiently.

The consultancy also advises on materials testing and, if required, can design and manufacture dedicated equipment to meet specific needs. The company operates across commercial, industrial 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.
