Gas barrier

Gas barrier

Apparatus for gas barrier measurement

  • Rapid gas Screening
  • Ultra High Vacuum system (10-8 mbar)
  • Adapted sample holder for flexible films
  • On-Line integration
  • No sample preparation
  • Integrated calibrated leak measurement
  • Evolutionary (for water,O2 & other gases)

Product Concept:

  • Sea-motion correction system to ensure quality of the data measured by the LIDAR
  • LIDAR vendor-independent solution
  • Post-processing software
