Water Detection Labels

Product Overview

Water detection labels change color when exposed to moisture. Typically, these labels are used as warranty labels for electronic equipment where water exposure can damage electronic components and void the equipment warranty.

  • Control Warranty Claims

Water Detection Label

Before exposure to water, the label shows no color change.

Water Detection Label

After brief exposure (less than 1 second) to water, the color change will be visible at the perimeter of the label.

Water Detection Label

After longer exposure (1 minute or more) to water, the color change will be prominent in the entire label.

When exposed to water, all water detection labels change from white to red. Stock and custom versions are available.

Humidity does not trigger the color change; only direct contact with moisture.
