Oxygen Permeability Testing

Oxygen barrier property is a key to a packaging systems ability to protect its products from oxidation. Oxygen permeability may vary with temperature, humidity, pressure, and specimen thickness.

Our OxySense equipment can also be used for non-invasive and invasive measurements of oil, water, and air and permits multiple measurements over time on the same package.
