Humidity Indicator Card

Humidity Indicator Card

The Humidity Indicator Card (HICs) is a packaging indicator equipped with moisture-sensitive spots which enable one to detect the level of humidity in the surrounding environment. The HICs are also capable of changing colour from blue to pink when humidity rises, providing a visual indication to users that the product is exposed to unacceptably high humidity levels. Small, economical, and easy to read, the HICs can provide reliable humidity readings. HICs are approved for MIL – I – 8835 applications with the 30%, 40%, 50% HIC complying with the MS20003-2 standard, the 5%, 10%, 15% HICs complying with JEDEC Standard 033 and the 5%, 10%, – 60% HICs with JDEC Standard 033B. They are available in two different models, Cobalt Dichloride Free or Cobalt Free.

The Cobalt Dichloride Free Humidity Indicator cards (also known as blue humidity indicator cards) are impregnated with a carefully mixed cobalt chloride solution. This solution allows the card to detect and change colour from blue to pink once a specific relative humidity level has been reached. On the other hand, the Cobalt Free Humidity Indicator Cards (also known as brown humidity indicator cards) have a copper chloride base that detects humidity and enables colour change from brown to azure (blue). These humidity sensor cards were developed to be free of cobalt chloride, making them safer to use. They are compliant with the European Community Council Directive 67/548/ECC.
