Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate (MVTR)

September 1, 2015 08:00 PM

Moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR), sometimes referred to as water vapor transmission rate (WVTR), is a measure of the passage of water vapor through an article during a period of time. There are many applications of synthetic emulsion polymers in which moisture control is critical. 

Foods are placed in packaging to control the MVTR and achieve the required quality, safety, and shelf life. In the building and construction industry, coatings and membranes are used to manage water resistance and MVTR to control the flow of water vapor.
