Packaging Permeation Rates


We’d like to emphasize that this tool serves as a basic guideline. While we offer this service free of charge, we cannot guarantee its accuracy. Factors such as varying temperatures or humidity levels can significantly alter diffusion rates. This tool aims to offer an initial, rough estimate. For precise permeation property determination, we always recommend an assessment using a certified method. Should you require guidance, we’re here to provide expert advice.

Analyse the permeability of your films with the permeation calculator

Permeability is an important factor for the quality and shelf life of packaged products, especially in the medical technology sector. Permeability describes how much gas or vapour can pass through a film. This can influence or even damage the properties and functions of the packaged products. To determine the permeability of your films, you do not necessarily have to carry out expensive and time-consuming tests. Instead, you can use our permeation calculator for films, which gives you a quick and easy overview of the permeation rates of your films. In this article, we explain how you can use the permeation calculator for films and what advantages it offers you.
