CalRamic Application Note AN112: Handling of Ceramic Capacitors

Ceramic capacitors are susceptible to mechanical and thermal shock and larger capacitors in particular can be easily damaged if the operator does not pay particular attention to how they handle the device. In addition, care should be taken to insure that the surface of a capacitor is not contaminated or compromised. Failure to observe basic handling practices may result in the formation of internal micro fractures, surface chip outs and / or other
adverse conditions, which may affect the performance and reliability of the component.
CalRamic Technologies has adopted necessary controls and handling procedures to insure that these capacitors are undamaged and not contaminated throughout processing and delivery and the customer in turn needs to assure that same level of care is taken from the point of receipt, thru assembly and final test.
