    Moisture vapor transmission rate Moisture vapor transmission rate Document Transcript

    • MOISTURE VAPOR TRANSMISSION RATE (MVTR)What is Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR)?MVTR stands for "Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate", a measure of the passage ofgaseous H2O through a barrier. Its also known as "WVTR", or "Water VaporTransmission Rate".How is moisture resistance measured?Moisture resistance is measured in a special chamber where it is divided vertically by thesubstrate/barrier material. A dry atmosphere is in one chamber, and a moist atmosphere isin the other. A 24-hour test is run to see how much moisture passes through thesubstrate/barrier from the "wet" chamber to the "dry" chamber. Standard test procedures(TAPPI T-464, ASTM E96) can specify any one of five combinations of temperature andhumidity in the "wet" chamber. The toughest conditions are 100°F / 95%RH (RelativeHumidity).Currently, the best barrier material on the market today has an MVTR of .02. AtProtective Packaging Corporation we focus on providing only the highest qualitymoisture barrier materials.
