Description

Standard Cobalt Dichloride Free Humidity Indicator Cards.

Humidity Indicator Cards (HIC’s) are used to determine when products have been exposed to moisture and humidity above recommended storage levels. They are a low-cost method of indicating humidity conditions inside a moisture barrier bag after vacuum packaging. Each Humidity Indicator Card is printed with moisture sensitive spots, which respond to various levels of humidity with a visible colour change from blue to pink. The humidity inside dry packed moisture metallised barrier bags can be monitored by including a HIC inside. When the bag is opened, the card can be examined for proper dryness inside the bag. This indicates that the barrier bag and the desiccants are functioned correctly.

In order to constantly verify that dry packaging methods are not compromised during storage and transport of products, Humidity Indicator Cards allow users along the supply chain to monitor the packages conditions. The cards are reversible and change as conditions change in the packaging environment, allowing users to monitor the conditions of product packaging.

Cobalt Dichloride Free

Cobalt dichloride is a chemical that changes colour when exposed to changing storage levels of moisture and is commonly used in HIC’s for that purpose. Cobalt dichloride is a chemical regulated under European Chemical Bureau (ECB) REACH and has been identified as a substance of concern for the environment and for that reason Cobalt Dichloride Free HIC’s provide electronic and semiconductor manufacturers with an IPC/JEDEC J-STD-0.33 complaint humidity card that is free of Cobalt Dichloride and complies with evolving EU and WEEE directives regarding hazardous substances.
