The stress dissipation layer can likewise help to dissipate stresses experienced by the capacitor (e.g., during encapsulation, reflow, etc.) so that they are not as likely to cause damage to the solid electrolyte. The stress dissipation layer can also be relatively porous in nature so that humidity trapped in the capacitor can escape and diminish the pressure that might otherwise be transferred to the solid electrolyte.05-17-2012
