Recommended Use:

This kit is designed to identify and quantify zinc whiskers and other metal fibers (including tin whiskers) growing on data center equipment and infrastructure. Zinc and tin whiskers are highly conductive crystals which can become airborne and are a major cause of catastrophic equipment failure. Since many surfaces in data centers have the potential to grow metal crystals it is important to monitor their growth.


  • Easy to use.
  • Simply stick the test tab to a surface to be tested then peel off and send to our lab.
