Porosity/Air Permeability Test
Air Permeability Testing per ISO 11607 Packaging Compliance Labs offers ISO 11607 compliant air permeability and porosity testing to ensure packaging meets these requirements. In this test, packaging is subjected to a constant preset air pressure to determine the level of porosity and permeability.
This air permeability test measures the ability of air to pass through a material after being subjected to an event, such as aging, distribution or sterilization. The ISO 11607 language is currently being strengthened regarding the performance of this test after distribution and shelf life validations. PCL engineers track regulatory trends to ensure you receive the most accurate and relevant project support.
