Standard Test Method for Determining Gas Permeability Characteristics of Plastic Film and Sheeting
|Publication Date:||1 May 2023|
|ICS Code (Films and sheets):||83.140.10|
This test method utilizes a manometric method to determine the steady-state rate of transmission of a gas through plastics in the form of film, sheeting, laminates, and plastic-coated papers or fabrics. This test method provides for the determination of (1) gas transmission rate (GTR), (2) permeance, and, in the case of homogeneous materials, (3) permeability.
