One of the big problems that cause electronics to fail is water vapour.  It  is omnipresent and manages to leak in not just through seals, but it can also permeate in through the actual material of a protective electronic enclosure as well.   It’s caused everything from a failed computer to a failed missile  - and in many applications that’s just not good enough!

Now, thanks to Versaperm, measuring this (permeability) has become a lot easier for enclosures, seals, material samples, finished products and even coatings.

Versaperm’s new equipment is fast and accurate, measuring in the parts per million range (parts per billion with some gases).  Conventional techniques take several days, but this latest advanced equipment and sensors can take from as little as 30 minutes for many materials.

The meter can be configured to measure permeability not just for water vapour, but also for hydrocarbons, oxygen, nitrogen, CO2 and most other gases or vapours.  It is simple 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 accurate, repeatable and reliable results.

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