Oxygen Transmission Rate (OTR) Testing and ASTM D3985 Compliance
When it comes to determining oxygen transmission rate (OTR) of your flexible barrier materials for your product packaging or industrial application, having the right testing equipment is of the utmost importance. Key factors such as thickness of the material and environmental factors such as relative humidity and temperature help to understand material permeability, making accurate testing data essential.
At MOCON our OX-TRAN Model 1/50 OTR test system is designed for low cost oxygen permeation rate testing with single cell flat films. Only MOCON instruments comply with ASTM D3985, a standard requiring the test procedure be done with a coulometric sensor to measure any oxygen being transmitted through material.
In addition to ASTM D3985, the OX-TRAN Model 1/50 is fully compliant with F1927, JIS K7126-B, DIN 53380-3 and ISO 15105-2 standards.
