Abstract : Prototype humidity indicators were tested and evaluated by the contractor simultaneously with humidity indicators presently used or previously considered for packaging appications. The newly developed humidity indicator is highly shock resistant, has a standard deviation of 2.2 percent RH over its calibrated range, is easily and quickly read on a calibrated scale, and is comparable in cost and mounting characteristics with the color change plug type that adapts into a 1 7/16 - 18 inch threaded hole.
