Humidity Indicator Cards

Humidity Indicator Cards (HICs) provide a low-cost method of indicating humidity conditions inside a moisture barrier bag after vacuum packaging. The indicator spots on the HICs change color from blue to pink as humidity increases and from pink to blue as humidity decreases. Our HICs:

  • Meet MIL-I-8835 and MIL-P-116 MTH II and JEDEC Standards
  • Cobalt Dichloride Free versions available that comply with ECB REACH directives
  • Offer superior protection, especially when used with Advantek VAPLOK™ Desiccants and DRYLOK® Moisture Barrier Bags

 

Construction

Humidity Indicator Cards are constructed of a moisture-sensitive blotting paper.

Configurations

Advantek offers several versions of Humidity Indicator Cards. The number of indicator spots on the HIC varies, depending upon the range of humidity to be measured. The product is shipped in airtight tins to prevent exposure to moisture.

Shelf Life and Storage

Depending on the product, HICs are recommended for use within 24 months of manufacture. They should be stored in the original packaging in a climate-controlled environment where temperature ranges from 20°C +/- 16°C (68°F +/- 61°F) and relative humidity is 50% +/- 30%. Exceeding these recommended storage conditions could result in inconsistent product performance.
