Permeation - Barrier Materials

MOCON permeation instruments for determining Oxygen Transmission Rate (OTR), Carbon Dioxide Transmission Rate (CO2TR) and Water Vapour Transmission Rate (WVTR). Barrier material assessment is useful for many industries and applications, such as predicting food shelf life, preventing costly over packaging and avoiding package failures.
