Does your product have a shelf-life or expiration date?

Harwin operates a Shelf Life policy for all connector products containing plated components.

During the period of the 36-month shelf life, the connectors must be stored in acceptable storage conditions, constituting:

  • The product must be kept in the original sealed Harwin packaging at all times and must retain all date code traceable numbers.
  • The product must be stored in a suitable environment that is not subjected to extreme variations in temperature and humidity.

For connector products stored at Harwin, at the end of the 3 year shelf life, any components that have not been sold are destroyed and responsibly recycled.

If you have any questions regarding this statement, please use the Contact form to talk to our Technical Teams.

This Policy is also available in PDF Format for download.
