Moisture is a detrimental factor when it comes to manufacturing or processing electronics, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, or sensitive chemicals. Where gaskets and other sealing solutions work to ensure an enclosure is waterproof, that does not guarantee the container is also moisture-proof.
There are many external sources that can go into consideration in regards to ensuring an application is moisture protected.
