3M™ Water Contact Indicator Tapes
Proof
Positive
Designed to provide clear,
accurate evidence of liquid
water intrusion
3M™ Water Contact Indicator Tapes
Fast &
Accurate
Water
Detection
for
Electronics
When liquid water contacts
the tape edge, the absorbent
indicator layer quickly changes
from white to red. Not affected
by heat.
White indicates dry
Red indicates water intrusion
3M™ Water Contact Indicator Tapes are self-adhesive
film/paper laminate constructions that change
color from white to red when contacted by liquid
water. They provide a fast, accurate and easy way
to positively detect water intrusion into sensitive
electronic devices, including mobile handheld
devices, e-books, digital cameras and laptop
computers. They are especially useful for providing
evidence of water damage during shipment or when
validating consumer warranty claims.
3M water contact indicator tapes are highly
resistant to temperature – changing color only
when their edges contact liquid water. In this
way, false readings from high temperatures are
virtually eliminated. The red color change
is irreversible after drying.
3M water contact indicator tapes are longlasting, and have shown exceptional resistance to
wash-out and bleach-out from strong oxidizers.

3M™ Water Contact Indicator Tape 5557
is the workhorse of this product family,
and offers a comprehensive package of
environmental stability, indication speed,
total caliper and printability.
3M™ Ultrathin Water Contact Indicator
Tapes 5558 and 5559 offer a thinner total
caliper, where tight geometries dictate a very
low thickness water indicator product.
3M™ Water Contact Indicator Tape 5557NP
is a new addition to this family. The product
retains most of the premium attributes of
5557 indicator tape, while offering enhanced
indication speed through removal of the top
film layer.
3M™ Water Contact Indicator Tape 5559i
has the same attributes as tape 5559 except
the adhesive is on the top side for viewing
through transparent substrates, which may
be used in certain product designs.

The indicator layer and polyester liner
of 3M water contact indicator tapes
combine for easy and accurate die cutting
with automated equipment, including
high-speed rotary converters. In addition,
the clear top layer can be custom-printed,
using thermal, flexographic or screen
printing processes, allowing inclusion
of code numbers, simple directions, bar
codes, brand identification and more.
