Application Note: Achieve More Accurate Test Results Using Edge Effect Cells in Coated Paper Applications

Edge effect occurs when oxygen and/or moisture from the ambient environment leaks through the edge of a permeation test sample such as coated paper, coated paperboard or laminate.

Edge Effect Cells are a simple and accurate way to minimize edge effect while testing transmission rates of coated paper materials. This Application Note will discuss how to achieve better, more accurate test results using Edge Effect Cells in Coated Paper applications.
