Cracking caused by flexing stress after board mounting is minimized due to resin external electrodes!
Cracking of the ceramic element is suppressed by the resin of the external electrodes, which releases the stress.
Note: Cracks may occur in the capacitor body if excessive stress beyond the "guaranteed range of board bending strength (*) " provided in the specifications is applied. Capacitors with cracks in them may cause a drop in insulation resistance, which could lead to a short circuit.
(*) For details on the guaranteed range of board bending strength, check the "Detailed Specification Sheet" on the Product Details Page.
