ASTM WK30771

    Work Item: ASTM WK30771 - New Test Method for Impermeability of Flexible Barrier Materials to the Passage of Air

    Developed by Subcommittee: F02.20 | Committee F02 | Contact Staff Manager

    1. Scope

    This document is used to define the standard method to use in determining the resistance of impermeable material to the passage of air. This standard establishes both a pass-fail criteria and a method for characterizing the impermeability of materials during product development and evaluation. This standard is written for use on flexible barrier packaging material; that blocks the passage of air for a given period of time. This test is an indirect method for determining the ability of a material to block the passage of micro organisms. This standard may be used to fulfill impermeability testing of materials as defined in ISO-11607-1 2006 Annex C


    Flexible material, impermeable, impermeability, Gurley, ISO 11607

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
