There are many packaging materials and applications that require a functional coating to perform as a moisture barrier, to seal in freshness and keep out moisture or humidity. Also known as low moisture vapor transmission coatings. The MVTR measures the effectiveness of the moisture barrier to prevent water vapor from being transmitted from one side of the paper or packaging to the other. This low MVTR coating helps to provide protection, ensure a longer shelf-life, and better product and package integrity.
