Dymax 9771 Conformal Coating Receives MIL-I-46058C Certification for PCBASeptember 12, 2023 | Dymax
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
Dymax, a leading manufacturer of light-curing materials and equipment, is pleased to announce that their ground-breaking AR conformal coating, 9771, has completed the rigorous qualification testing for Military Specification MIL-I-46058C. This UL94V0 and UL746E recognized dual-cure coating has also been approved to the IPC-CC-830B standard and fully complies with RoHS2 Directives 2015/863/EU.
The MIL-I-46058C standard establishes conformal coating compliance requirements and evaluates them to an extensive list of properties, including curing time and temperature, material thickness, moisture resistance, fungus resistance, insulation resistance, flexibility, hydrolytic stability, and flame resistance. 9771 is now listed in the DOD QPL (Qualified Products Listing) database so military manufacturers know it is approved.
Along with this important recognition, 9771 coating passes NASA Low Outgassing ASTM E595 specification for cleaner PCBs during extreme conditions and meets low-ionic content compliance with Mil-Std 883 Method 5011. Additionally, 9771 is NASA MAPTIS listed and assigned material number 09841, so suppliers searching for low-outgassing coatings can easily find it in the database.
Dymax 9771 conformal coating is 100% solids with a blue fluorescing tracer. This high-performance, dual-cure reworkable conformal coating cures with UV/Visible light and moisture in shadow areas.
The practical question around CHIPS Act development and electronics assembly is, “Will this change how we do business?” Indium Corporation’s Dr. Andy Mackie sat down with Nolan Johnson to share what he sees as emerging answers to that question from his perspective as an expert in electronics assembly and packaging, and as a participant in standards development through IPC, JEDEC, and SEMI.
IPC continues to collaborate with the electronics manufacturing industry to meet their current and future workforce training needs.
Though product demand weakened this month with Orders and Backlog Indexes slipping, overall electronics industry operations remain healthy per IPC’s September 2023 Global Sentiment of the Electronics Supply Chain Report.
Rigid-flex circuits are unique structures; part rigid board and part flex, they’re increasingly working their way into many of the electronic devices we use every day. There have been many advances in rigid-flex lately as more companies find themselves exploring this technology. So, before I started writing this article about rigid-flex design, I double-checked a few things. Fortunately, there is plenty of rigid-flex information available on a variety of great websites that we all know and trust.
