MOISTURE RESISTANCE/ HUMIDITY
This test is performed for evaluating the resistance
of component parts and constituent materials to the deteriorative effects
of the highhumidity and heat conditions typical of tropical environments.
Most tropical degradation results directly or indirectly from absorption
of moisture vapor, and from surface wetting. These phenomena produce many
types of deterioration, including corrosion of metals; physical distortion
and decomposition of organic materials; leaching out of constituent components
of materials, and detrimental changes in electrical properties.
Moisture resistance/humidity testing is specified in
the following:
