Principle

Under a certain test temperature, a constant humidity difference is generated between two sides of the test specimen. The water vapor permeates through the specimen and into the dry side. By measuring the weight changes of the test dish in different time, water vapor transmission rate and other parameters can be obtained.

Standards

This test instrument conforms to the following standards:
ISO 2528, GB 1037, GB/T 16928, ASTM E96, ASTM D1653, TAPPI T464, DIN 53122-1, JIS Z0208, YBB 00092003

Applications:

This instrument is applicable to the determination of water vapor transmission rate of:

Basic Applications
  • Films
    Including plastic films, plastic composite films, paper-plastic composite films, geomembranes, coextruded films, aluminized films, aluminum foils, aluminum foil composite films, breathable water-proof films and many other film materials
  • Sheeting
    Including engineering plastics, rubber, building materials and many others, e.g. PP, PVC and PVDC
  • Paper and Paper Board
    Including paper and paper board
  • Textiles and Nonwovens
    Including textiles and non-woven materials, e.g. waterproof breathable fabric, non-woven fabric for diapers and hygienic products
Extended Applications
  • Inverted Cup Method
    Mount film or sheeting in test dish, cover upper surface of specimen with distilled water, and make the lower side in certain humidity. Generate a constant humidity difference between two sides; water vapor permeates through specimen and measure weight changes in different time to obtain the water vapor transmission rate.
    NOTE: inverted cups are required
  • Artificial Skin
    Artificial skin has to meet standard requirements for water vapor transmission rate to ensure better breath performance. This instrument can be used to test  water vapor permeability of artificial skin
  • Medical Products and Accessories
    Including plasters, aseptic wound protecting films, face masks and scar sticks
  • Solar Back-Sheets
    Including solar back-sheets
  • LCD Monitor Films
    Including LCD monitor films
  • Paint Films
    Test water vapor permeability of various sorts of paint films
  • Cosmetics
    Test water vapor permeability of cosmetics
  • Biodegradable Films
    Test water vapor permeability of various sorts of biodegradable films, e.g. starch-based packaging films
