Water Vapor Transmission Rate (WVTR) ASTM F

Testing Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards. The method is applicable to sheets and films up to 3 mm 0. F provides more precise and repeatable WVTR testing data compared to E96, and provides that information in less time.

What is Third Party Zstm and Accreditation for the food industry?

Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 43, people in 1, locations in over countries. F can accurately differentiate barrier attributes of materials and packaging below the sensitivity limits of E Certification Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. Key factors to understand material permeation include thickness of astn material and environmental factors such as relative humidity and temperature.

Ast, packaging plays an important role in protecting product quality for the duration of its desired shelf life and providing packaged product stability.

Auditing Consulting Sourcing Training. Work Item s – f249 revisions of this standard. It provides for the determination of 1 water vapor transmission rate WVTR2 the permeance of the film to water vapor, and 3 for homogeneous materials, water vapor permeability coefficient. The inverse relationship of WVTR to thickness and the direct relationship of WVTR f12449 the partial pressure differential of water vapor may not always apply.

Whether your business is local or global, we can ensure your products meet quality, health, environmental, safety, and social accountability standards for virtually astn market around the world.

Testing repeatability is of great importance. Note 1 — Values for water vapor permeance and water vapor permeability must be used with caution. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets.

F has many clear advantages over E96, including precision, repeatability, accuracy and sensitivity. For moisture sensitive products, such as crackers, dry milk powers, prescription medicines, etc. Through our network of over 43, people in 1, laboratories and offices in countries, Intertek provides quality and safety solutions to a wide range of industries around the world.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Water Vapor Transmission Rate (WVTR) ASTM F1249

Assurance Testing Inspection Certification. ASTM E96 test method is also known as gravimetric or cup test. At a selected temperature and humidity, a barrier film is sealed between a wet chamber and dry chamber.


Determine asttm vapor transmission rate of flexible barrier materials used in packaging or industrial applications. F allows companies of all sizes to accomplish more with fewer labor resources and provides better, more precise results.

ASTM E96 vs. F for WVTR Permeation Testing

This method is suitable to test modern flexible barrier films and sheets consisting of single and multilayer natural or synthetic polymers and foils. The lowest detection limit is limited by the balance, usually only measures WVTR above 0. Test results from E96 method are also highly operator dependent. Greater sensitivity provided by F methodology ensures lab and business managers have the information they need to make packaging decisions that meet requirements in challenging environmental conditions globally.

Water Vapor Transmission Rate Scope: Formally confirming that your atsm and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. Need help or have a question? By producing actionable results in less time, F accelerates product and packaging development, and time to market is similarly reduced.

For modern high barrier materials, this method is not sensitive enough to measure the results, or efficiently obtain results in a reasonable time period. Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards. Packaging Applications – Healthcare 4.

Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic astk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. E96 is highly labor intensive and generally provides poor in-lab repeatability and reproducibility between labs. A pressure modulated sensor measures moisture transmitted through the material tested.
