Özet


 The paperboard packages must protect and store the product. The air and moisture permeability of the packages which are in direct contact with the foodstuff are particularly important. Therefore, in the study; In order to determine the moisture permeability, the paperboards used had different thicknesses (24,26,28 micron) and grammages but, the same properties (inner structure, surface and coating). Paperboards were subjected to WVTR test for 7 days at 22°C temperature, 55% humidity and 42°C temperature, 85%humidity values using Thwing-Albert EZ-Cup Vapometer Permeability Cups. Reactions of paperboards against standard and extreme humidity and temperature conditions were determined.
