The permeability of other penetrants, namely [N.sub.2] and [CO.sub.2] was also inspected, at 35 and 65[degrees]]C: the coating permeability follows the solubility trend that, as it is often observed in polymers, increases with the penetrant critical temperature, which is a measure of its condensability.
By far the highest solubility in the polymer was observed for TCE, possibly because of its high condensability (boiling point: 121[degrees]C).
The heat of solution can be either positive or negative, depending on the gas condensability and its ability to interact with the polymer.
