For 50 years MOCON Inc. has been recognized as the global leader of quality permeation testing systems.

Permeation is the movement of gases or vapors across a barrier material and it greatly influences shelf life. Understanding the permeation rates of packaging (a barrier) material in the beginning of the development process helps to avoid both over- and under-packaging.

MOCON provides instruments and testing services for:

  • Oxygen, water vapor, carbon dioxide
  • Volatile permeants
  • Inert gases
  • Barrier, package integrity & shelf life consultation
  • Odor identification & aroma profiling

MOCON’s permeation group supports industries such as food, beverage, packaging, pharmaceutical, medical device, electronics, construction, consumer products, chemical, textile and many others.

The permeation group has an extensive sales and service network throughout the world as well as contract permeation laboratories in key locations.
