Fundamentals of Packaging Permeation

About the Seminar

Appropriate resistance to permeation is critical for product protection from environmental conditions that can increase field returns, shorten shelf life, and hasten spoilage.  Designed for personnel who design packages and products, the Fundamentals of Packaging Permeation two-day training course provides a fundamental understanding of the nature of permeation in flexible, semi-rigid and rigid packaging systems for foods, pharmaceuticals and other packaged goods.   The comprehensive course covers material from the foundations of mass transfer (Fick’s Laws) to practical prediction of multilayer transmission rates.

Who Should Attend

The seminar is recommended for professionals in R&D, testing, process, design, fabrication and manufacturing of food, pharmaceutical, medical, cosmetic, chemical, veterinary or industrial product packaging. Packaging, film and foil personnel who require an understanding of permeation as it relates to their products will also benefit from this comprehensive training course.
