Customers must be able to rely on accurate humidity indication as an assurance of SMD quality and fitness for processing and use. Without it, they might accept SMDs from suppliers that have already been irreparably damaged by moisture during storage or transit. Or, they might approve for processing SMDs that have been improperly or insufficiently heat-dried. Beyond the processing questions, there are financial questions: Where did the dry pack problems originate and who--supplier, customer, shipper--is financially responsible for the damaged SMDs? In response, Clariant, the originator of the color change humidity indicator card, and a member of the JEDEC's Subcommittee 14.1, "Reliability and Test Methods for Packaged Devices," created a new "non-reversible" halogen and cobalt dichloride free humidity indicator card. This HIC combines two reversible indicators (5% and 10%) with a new non-reversible (60% RH) indicator spot. (Figure 1) The 5% and 10% reversible spots work the way similar indicators do: they change color from blue (dry), to lavender, to pink (wet) to indicate humidity exposure at the indicated levels. If humidity levels drop, they will gradually revert back to blue....

Meet Clariant at IPC APEX EXPO for a one-to-one interview about the unique support for more sustainable electronics’ production and the J-STD-033D-preferred unique moisture-control combo for dry packe
Jan 13, 2020 | As electronics brands demand more sustainable materials and product reliability across their supply chains, Clariant brings two elements together to uniquely boost moisture-exposure assurance for dry-packed Level 2+ components. It is the only option for semiconductor manufacturers, integrated circuit companies and OEM suppliers to meet latest J-STD-033D preferences and increasing low-halogen & cobalt-dichloride-free specifications.
Nov 15, 2019 | As intelligent industrial manufacturing gains a stronger foothold in production alongside the more established customization/prototyping arenas, Clariant returns to this year’s formnext with new solutions to support the growth. A new halogen-free flame retardant 3D printing material takes center stage alongside eye-catching and unique printed end use parts from a range of applications.
Oct 22, 2019 | Humitector™ Type 2 delivers advanced sustainable attributes including halogen-free*, cobalt dichloride-free, and reduced cobalt dibromide content The use of Type 2 Humidity Indicator Cards with a non-reversible 60% RH spot indicator is preferred by IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-033D.
Aug 21, 2018 | Clariant's new Humitector Type 2 Non-Reversible Humidity Indicator Cards contain a patent-pending non-reversible 60% humidity spot indicator which enables them to indicate whether dry packed surface mount devices (SMDs) have been exposed to high levels of moisture at any point during shipment or storage. This unique innovation offers a major step forward in preventing moisture-compromised surface mounts from entering production.
Jun 13, 2018 | Market's first non-reversible humidity indicator Card Type 2 is low-halogen and cobalt-dichloride-free. Complies with the latest revision of IPC/JEDEC standard, J-STD-033D.
