Humidity Indicator Cards Storage and Reactivation
January 2016
SCS Humidity Indicator Cards do not have a set life span. For best results, Humidity Indicator
Card inventory should be continually replenished, and be stored in closed original packaging.
The user must determine the suitability of Humidity Indicator Cards for use in his particular
application. Humidity Indicator Cards containers should be stored in a dry, well ventilated room
with a reasonably consistent temperature of 75°F (24°C) and be protected from exposure to
direct sunlight, and should not be stored in ultraviolet sunlight, moisture, or heat. Mishandling or
improper storage may render Humidity Indicator Cards unable to perform their function.
SCS recommends those who are tracking the useful life of product use the shipping/invoice
date as a reference. Desco Industries, Inc. expressly warrants that for a period of one (1) year
from the date of purchase, SCS Humidity Indicator Cards will be free of defects in material
(parts) and workmanship (labor).
SCS recommends that product over one year old should be tested, but our expectation would
be that it would meet all published specifications. Although accuracy may diminish, SCS
Humidity Indicator Cards may be reactivated and reused. The normal process for a Humidity
Indicator Card is start as blue indicating spots and change to pink when exposed to a relative
humidity level. If the spot is already pink, the indicating spot color can be reversed from pink to
blue by placing the Humidity Indicator Card in a dry container (such as a moisture barrier bag
with desiccant) for 24 hours. To accelerate the process, the can of cards can be baked for 3
hours at 180°F. The can lid and desiccant pack should be removed prior to baking. The can lid
should be replaced tightly after baking.
