Unpermeable is a term used to describe substances or materials that are unable to be penetrated by a liquid or gas. It is useful to know when deciding which type of material to use for a certain purpose. For example, certain types of plastic and rubber are unpermeable, meaning they won't allow any liquid or gas to pass through them.
