Moisture Vapor Transmission and Moisture Barrier Materials

MVTR is a measure of the passage of gaseous H2O through a barrier. Currently, the best barrier material on the market today has an MVTR of .02.

PRLog - Feb. 25, 2013 - CARROLLTON, Texas -- What is Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR)?
stands for "Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (http://www.protectivepackaging.net/mvtr)", a measure of the passage of gaseous H2O through a barrier. It's also known as "WVTR", or "Water Vapor Transmission Rate".

How is moisture resistance measured?
Moisture resistance is measured in a special chamber where it is divided vertically by the substrate/barrier material. A dry atmosphere is in one chamber, and a moist atmosphere is in the other. A 24-hour test is run to see how much moisture passes through the substrate/barrier from the "wet" chamber to the "dry" chamber. Standard test procedures (TAPPI T-464, ASTM E96) can specify any one of five combinations of temperature and humidity in the "wet" chamber. The toughest conditions are 100°F / 95%RH (Relative Humidity).

Currently, the best barrier material on the market today has an MVTR (http://www.protectivepackaging.net/mvtr) of .02. At Protective Packaging Corporation we focus on providing only the highest quality moisture barrier materials.
