Clariant will deliver a new level of moisture-exposure assurance to surface mount suppliers and device manufacturers in the Far East, with the regional debut of the first Type 2 non-reversible humidity indicator card for dry packing – Humitector Type 2 – at Semicon Taiwan from 5 to 7 September 2018 in Taiwan, China.

The company’s new product contains a patent-pending non-reversible 60% humidity spot indicator which enables them to indicate whether dry packed surface mount device (SMD) has 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.

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 Type 1 card offers only reversible indicators that reflect current (dry or humid) conditions at the precise time of checking.

The Humitector Type 2 non-reversible 60% indicator will show clearly if this threshold has been exceeded as the permanent colored spot will have migrated beyond its black circle.

As originators of the color change humidity indicator card, we are very proud to lead the way with this advanced option for surface mount devices,” said Menghwee Toh, Head of Clariant Cargo & Device Protection, Asia. “Importantly, they also avoid the use of substances of concern to the European Chemical Bureau and offer compliance with the recently updated dry packing standard for such goods. Indeed, the use of Type 2 HICs with a non-reversible 60% spot indicator is preferred by IPC/JEDEC standard J-STD-033D.”

At the booth, Clariant Cargo & Device Protection will also present Desi Pak desiccant bag. It is a simple, dependable and economical solution for preventing moisture damage in enclosed packages such as dry packs for moisture sensitive surface mount device. Placed together with Humitector Type 2 inside a dry pack, Desi Pak will help protect against the harmful effects of moisture.
