Humidity Indicator Card

Humidity Indicator Cards (HICs) have moisture-sensitive spots which detect and change from blue to pink according to the humidity level in the surrounding environment, allowing you to quickly identify when your product has been in unacceptably high humidity levels.

Usually packed together with a desiccant and moisture barrier bag, HICs read humidity reliably, are compact, inexpensive, and easy to read.

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.

Available in both Cobalt Dichloride Free or Cobalt Free – click ‘Selection Guide’ to find out which is more suitable for your needs!
