Versaperm is a world leader in the measurement of gas permeability. Our instruments, testing service and consultancy are interlinked.

Our ability to design instruments is based on our technological expertise married to our experience testing a wide variety of materials and gases.

Likewise our ability to perform testing is facilitated by our understanding of the performance capabilities of our instruments, and access to cutting edge developmental instruments before they are launched on the market.

Finally, the two aspects are combined in the consultancy section, where decades of technical skill and experience are made available to our customer.

Vapour permeability is the critical characteristic in many applications as it affects not just the flow and distribution of vapour, but also the material or components physical characteristics - including strength, handling, printinability and durability.

Most foods and pharmaceuticals require packaging that controls the flow of vapour (i.e. permeability) to achieve a desired quality, safety and shelf life. In clothing it determines breathability and greatly affects the comfort of the wearer, especially during outdoor activity. The building, automotive, aerospace, marine and electronics, amongst many others, all demand accurate the use of materials with precisely controlled vapour permeability.

Our Permeability Laboratory has almost certainly already tested a sample similar to yours before - no matter what you application or how simple or complex the sample, component, enclosure or unit to be measured is.

While we naturally maintain strict confidentiality regarding each customer sample, our experience passed down over 30 years equips us to choose the right technique to quickly and accurately measure permeability of new samples

Most samples, packaging and coatings are supplied as flat samples, which can be quickly and easily measured with minimal sample preparation. For many food, pharmaceutical, and other applications, however, the testing of complete containers provides a greater certainty that the total packaging solution is effective.

Some samples are neither flat nor closed containers, but we have solutions for measuring permeability on these too, often these include special testing rigs

Our testing service is fast, efficient and, above all accurate. Before sending samples, please call us to discuss your application. We can usually provide an immediate quotation over the telephone, by email or by post . Sometimes we will need to look at the sample to make an assessment of the most appropriate technique.

Some of the many sample types we can test in our permeability testing laboratory

  • | - | -
    ----|------|----
    Adhesives | Fuel Cells | Paper
    Aerospace | Gravimetric | Packaging
    Automotive | ISO15105 | Pharmaceutical
    Blister Packs | Laboratory | Plastics and Rubber
    Building Materials | Leaks and Seals | Quality Control
    Business waste | MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) | Sachets an Powders
    Edible films | Marine | Solvents
    Electronics | Mastics and Adhesives | Textiles
    Films | Medical | Vapour Permeability
    Freezer Burn | O Rings |

Permeability is a measure of the rate at which a vapour (often water vapour, but we can test against virtually any gas) can flow through a material. Different techniques can give widely varying results so it is crucial that any testing facility fully understands the science and the specific application.

Vapour permeability sensors

  • | - | -
    -----|------|--------
    Carbon Dioxide | Hydrocarbons | Photoionization
    Catalytic Combustion | Hydrogen | Pressure Measurements
    Coulometric | Infrared | Semiconductor
    Electrochemical | Oxygen | Thermal Conductivity
    Flame Ionization | Mass Spectrometer | Water Vapour
    Gas Chromatography | Nitrogen | ZrO2
    Helium | Paramagnetic |

We are currently unable to use radioactive or highly toxic gases. However, please call to discuss your application.

  • Positive review for Gas Permeability Testing:

    June 2018

    "Versaperm provided a quick and high quality service. Christopher even kindly collected the bottles from site, needed to carry out the testing. On completion of the tested we asked for a report giving an outline of the methods used and any conclusions they thought could be drawn from the data. We are still awaiting this but I am sure it will be of high quality. Thanks for all your hard work."
