Ceramic Capacitors FAQ

Configurations/Material

Why the color of the ceramic elements seems different even within the same product?

The color of the ceramic element seems different between the top, bottom, and sides due to the transparency degree of the internal electrode.
Process control fluctuation of the manufacturing process or element lot could also cause this difference.
Although there is a slight difference, it doesn’t affect characteristics or reliability. 

Example 1.
The color of the ceramic element seems different between the top, bottom, and sides due to the degree of transparency.
