Remediation and Prevention of Moisture in Electronics

Receiving product complaints and returns may be your first indication that there is a problem with moisture in your electronic product. Moisture in sealed electronics may result in shorting, attenuation problems, mirror and lens fogging, intermittent functionality, and catastrophic failure. The experience your customer has with your product directly affects your brand integrity, which in turn affects sales and profits. Taking steps to correct a moisture issue or prevent it early on in the design stages can help you make large strides in reclaiming or protecting your brand position.
