Abstract

The shelf life of oxygen and moisture sensitive products is limited by a plastic package's ability to restrict or control the permeation of small molecules through the package's walls. Mass transfer and thermal transfer equations have the same theoretical basis, and therefore heat transfer modeling programs can be adapted to model permeation. This paper models and validates this concept.
