SCS Humidity Indicator Cards (HIC) are printed with moisture sensitive spots which change color from blue to
pink when exposed to a relative humidity level. The HIC is typically used with Desiccant inside a Moisture Barrier
Bag to protect static and moisture sensitive components noting the highest relative humidity level exposure. SCS
manufactures Moisture Barrier Bags with different laminates having different moisture vapor transmission rates. SCS
Dri-Shield® bags are designed to be used with Desiccant and an HIC for packaging surface mount devices (SMD)
trays and reels. The bags are sealed, including being vacuum sealed, containing the SMD or other content along with
the Desiccant and selected HIC. The HIC will note the highest relative humidity exposure, so the user can determine if
baking the devices is required. SCS recommends the user follow procedures defined in IPC/JEDEC J-STD-033. SCS
manufactures MBB and HIC products in Sanford, North Carolina.
SCS Desiccant pouches absorb moisture that passes through the bag laminate. Desiccant is packed inside Tyvek®
white non-woven plastic or brown kraft paper pouches, and is shipped in sealed pails or drums. The amount of
desiccant to use is dependent on the interior surface area of the bag; see EIA-583, Table 1, SCS Desiccant is
manufactured in North America.
