Barrier Materials

Barrier Material example

Barrier Materials are those materials specifically designed to limit the transmission of moisture vapor and/or gases of a wide variety. These materials are designed to provide protection against gases that may damage or reduce shelf life for food products, pharmaceuticals, and a wide variety of others. Often these materials are tested for their barrier properties using individual samples of films or, in other cases, whole package systems. For either type of test, Westpak is well-equipped with the resources and technically trained team members to provide material characteristics, material comparisons, compliance with record specifications, and a variety of other testing functions.
