The U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) approved Microtek Laboratories’ east coast facility with Laboratory Suitability Status for MIL-PRF-55110, MIL-PRF-31032 and MIL-PRF-50884. With the approval, the lab can now perform all applicable Group A, Group B, and Group C conformance and reliability testing, as well as full qualification testing, for those specifications.
The MIL-PRF-55110 specification establishes the performance and qualification requirements for rigid single-sided, double-sided, and multilayered printed wiring boards with or without plated through holes. MIL-PRF-31032 establishes requirements for printed circuit boards and printed wiring boards, while MIL-PRF-50884 establishes requirements for flexible and rigid-flex printed wiring boards with or without plated through holes.
Approval of the standards means the approval of MIL-I-46058, a conformal coating that provides new capabilities for Micotrek in the testing of coatings, such as fungus resistance and full test capabilities for IPC-CC-830. The IPC-CC-830 specification sets the requirements for all electrical insulating compounds.
