*Type ESR capacitors are not recommended for new design, and therefore, may be subject to larger than expected minimum order quantities. CDE capacitor Types ESRD, ESRE, and ESRL are recommended for new design, and can be used as replacements to upgrade existing designs that employ Type ESR capacitors. However, the ESRD, ESRE, and ESRL footprint is not compatible with the Type ESR footprint.

**International shipments of electronic equipment are often in wooden crates, and these crates may be fumigated with methyl bromide gas during shipment to control insect infestation. Also, some factories such as flourmills are routinely fumigated with this gas. Methyl bromide can penetrate cardboard boxes, vinyl bags and other packaging materials used to protect the equipment. Methyl bromide can also penetrate the seals of aluminum electrolytic capacitors; cause corrosion and cause open-circuit capacitor failure after the equipment is put into service. To protect against such failures use capacitors proven to be able to withstand fumigation or individually sealed to prevent penetration of the methylbromide gas.
