Storage Conditions

Chip resistors should be stored at 23±5°C and 10-70% relative humidity and avoid oxidizing conditions which adversely affect the termination finish. Exposure to excessive humidity, direct sunlight, and contact with sulfur-containing materials (rubber bands, etc.) should be avoided. Storage under an inert atmosphere should be considered if these devices are to be stored for extended time periods.

Product supplied on tape and reel packaging can be stored for up to two years at 23±5°C and 10-70% relative humidity with no degradation in the quality of the tape and reel packaging.
