Versaperm Vapour Permeability measurement



£100Ms Could Be Saved By Businesses Every Year

The damage and waste caused by water vapour costs UK businesses hundreds of millions of pounds a year – yet it can be checked with a simple 30 minute test. Paper jamming, perishables biodegrading, electronics failing, components rusting and pharmaceuticals loosing potency are all caused by a simple misunderstanding about water vapour that is easy to put right.

Enclosures, seals and packages are designed to keep water out (or in) - but they are often virtually useless when it comes to water vapour which can often pass through them virtually unhindered. Versaperm Limited is a world technology leader in this area and has introduced a quick and simple way to determine the water vapour permeability for most types of enclosures, seals, packaging, films, coatings or containers.

The Versaperm WVTR (Water Vapour Transmission) meter can cope with several samples at a time - often give a reading in as little as 30 minutes – whereas the conventional gravimetric measurement technique takes several days and is significantly less accurate.

The meter is easy to use and gives a series of digital readouts that can be recorded or simply read off the LCD screen. It needs no re-calibration and requires, at most, minimal training to give results that are accurate to better than one part per million (with some samples a few parts per hundred million). Sensitivities are in the range 0.05 – 3200g/m2/day.

The Versaperm system can not only supply the equipment but also offers a testing service for a huge range of products and packages – from blister packs to sterile packaging and from pizzas to missiles.
