The barrier property of a plastic polymer is a measure of its ability to permit the transfer of permeants such as gases, water vapor and aromas. Barrier polymers are often multiple layer laminates composed of a water vapor and gas barrier layer, a heat sealable layer and a structural or protective layer. As barriers they separate food from the external environment and limit the movement of permeants such as gases, vapors and aromas. Physical factors such as temperature, humidity, polymer orientation, and cross-linking can affect the barrier properties of a polymer. Knowledge of the barrier properties of plastic polymers is crucial for the design of food packaging that will deliver the desired shelf life.
