When subject to certain conditions, some materials may release volatile gases, a problem for hermetic components that require a carefully maintained internal atmosphere. These outgassed compounds can negatively affect the reliability of electronic components, reducing the lifespan of your equipment. It’s therefore important to understand the amount and types of outgassed species your device may be subjected to.
ORS has developed a glass ampoule sealing technique that can trap outgassed substances from a variety of organic and inorganic materials. This test provides both a qualitative and quantitative analysis of these outgassed compounds and can be used to plot outgassing over time and at various temperatures, offering information about long-term device aging.
