Molded Carbon Composition Resistor.
Carbon composition resistors are able to withstand larger short-term pulses and higher voltages than film resistors and are virtually impervious to ESD events (Electro-static discharge). Carbon composition resistors are also sensitive to moisture and, therefore, storage recommendations should be adhered to. Generally, any moisture absorbed during storage will be “baked out” during the soldering operation. If the product is stored properly the resistance shift during the soldering operation will be minimal, less than 2% or 3%
