One reason for faults in electronic products is water vapour which can all too easily permeate into any enclosure, casing, fibre or component - once inside it condenses and causes problems. One solution is from Versaperm which can measure the vapour permeability of both complete products and components or material samples.
The Versaperm system was purpose designed for vapour permeability testing and gives results that are typically accurate in the parts per million (PPM) range and sometimes into PPB. It can measure multiple components, material samples, seals or enclosures at a time. Environmental conditions can be controlled including temperature, pressure, partial pressure and humidity.
The system can also work with virtually any gas or vapour including water vapour, hydrocarbons, solvents, and CO2.
Versaperm also offers a laboratory service for companies that only need to test samples on an irregular basis.
