Water Vapor Transmission Rate Through Plastic Film and sheeting Using a Modulated Infrared Sensor

52,00 €


This test method covers a procedure for determining the rate of water vapor transmission through flexible barrier materials. The method is applicable to sheets and films up to 2.54 mm (0.1 in.) in thickness, consisting of single or multilayer synthetic or natural polymers and foils, including coated materials. It provides for the determination of (1) water vapor transmission rate (WVTR), (2) the permeance of the film to water vapor and (3), for homogeneous materials, water vapor permeability coefficient.

This method does not purport to address the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this method to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
