The cosmic microwave background (CMB) destinations a wide range of design-impartial constraints on the toughness interactions of the dominant component of darkish issue with the common product. %-amount subcomponents of the dark matter can evade the most stringent CMB bounds by mimicking the habits of baryons, allowing for for much larger couplings and novel experimental signatures. On the other hand, in this Letter, we will display that these types of tightly coupled subcomponents leave a measurable imprint on the CMB that is very well approximated by a adjust to the helium portion,


. Employing the current CMB constraint on


, we derive a new upper restrict on the portion of tightly coupled dim make a difference,


, of


(ninety five% C.I.). We show that future CMB experiments can access


(ninety five% C.I.) and validate that the bounds derived in this way concur with the success of a complete examination. These bounds offer an illustration of how CMB constraints on


have applications past studying large bang nucleosynthesis, because tightly coupled dark issue plays no immediate position in the formation of light nuclei. We briefly comment on the implications for design setting up, which include millicharged dark subject.
