Humidity Indicator Card - Humitector™ Type 2 Non Reversible, Halogen and Cobalt Dichloride Free Description:

How to Use and Read Humidity Indicator Card Type 2 - Humitector™

Humitector Type 2 Humidity Indicator Card, used together with a Desi Pak® desiccant, can help provide a complete history of a dry pack environment for moisture sensitive surface mount devices (SMD's) (MSD - moisture sensitive device).  It complies with IPC / JEDEC standard, J-STD-033D. Humitector Type 2 is halogen and cobalt dichloride free.

The new Humitector cards are the only low-halogen cobalt dichloride-free humidity indicator cards to combine multiple, reversible color humidity indicators with an industry first: a patent-pending, non-reversible 60% humidity indicator. They provide verifiable color change accuracy and meet or exceed applicable European Chemical Bureau regulations. The new cards have been approved for use by the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council (JEDEC) in the latest revisions to IPC/JEDEC J-STD-033 (J-STD-033D) – the dry packing standard for surface mount devices.

"Clariant developed Humitector Type 2 non-reversible humidity indicator cards because surface-mount suppliers and device manufacturers said that they wanted greater assurance in the integrity of dry packs for moisture-sensitive devices," said Michelle Martin, Head of Clariant Cargo & Device Protection, North America. "The 60% non-reversible indicator on these new cards makes it easy to see if the package contents have been exposed to high levels of moisture for a prolonged period of time."

Until now, users of moisture-sensitive, reflowable surface mount devices have had little choice in the humidity indicator cards required for use in protective packages governed by the J-STD-033 standard. Typical cards offer only reversible indicators that reflect current (dry or humid) conditions. If package contents, including the card, are exposed to damaging humidity but then returned to a dry environment before the card is checked, the exposure could go unnoticed as the card reverses back to a dry reading. As a result, surface mounts could enter production even though they may have been compromised by moisture.

Benefits

  • 60% non-reversible indicator spot provides a clear permanent visual signal that moisture sensitive surface mount devices have been exposed to humidity for a prolonged period of time
  • Complies with the latest revision of the Joint Electron Device Engineering Council IPC/JEDEC standard, J-STD-O33D
  • halogen and Cobalt dichloride free, a chemical regulated under European Chemical Bureau (ECB) REACH directives
  • Meet or exceed applicable ECB regulations
  • Easy to use with typical applications of dry packing (humidity indicator card, desiccant, moisture barrier bag, moisture sensitive label) of moisture sensitive surface mount devices - MSDs, SMDs
