Standard Test Method for Verifying Nonporous Flexible Barrier Material Resistance to the Passage of Air
|Publication Date:||1 April 2015|
|ICS Code (Sterilized packaging):||11.080.30|
This test method is to be used to verify a specific material design property. Some flexible barrier materials are designed to have a resistance to the passage of air through the membrane structure. These materials are characterized as nonporous. This test method provides a means to verify this property by challenging a material with a given volume of air under pressure over a specific time period.
This test method is not intended to measure the diffusion properties of a material nor to identify or quantify the presence of pinhole damage to the design that may result in leaks.
Units-The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
