Reading time ( words)

George Hsin, chief strategy officer of Taiwan Union Technology Corporation (TUC), is pleased to announce that TUC has gained certification to IPC-4101E Validation Services for three more products. TU-863, TU-863+, TU-863P MF and TU-865 are now listed on the IPC website under QPL Specification Sheet 130 in addition to TU-862 HF which was the first product so listed. To earn the QPL, TUC successfully completed an intensive audit based on IPC’s foremost standard on base materials for laminates and prepregs: IPC- 4101, Specification for Base Materials for Rigid and Multilayer Printed Boards and passed the qualification tests at Microtek Laboratories China, an IPC Validation Services approved, independent test lab.

Specification Sheet 130 outlines performance requirements for copper-clad laminates and prepregs comprised of modified multifunctional epoxy resin using halogen-free constituents to provide a UL-94 V-0 flame rating. The Tg must be greater than 170 degrees C.

As a specification sheet 130 QPL product, TUC’s TU-862 HF is suitable for boards that need to survive severe thermal cycles, or to experience excessive assembly work.

TU-862 HF laminates also exhibit superior chemical resistance, thermal stability for lead free soldering assembly and CAF resistance.

For these IPC-4101E/130 certified five products, TUC met or exceeded the IPCs Validation Services QPL requirements for producing materials used by printed circuit board manufacturers in the electronics industry. Thus, the company is now listed as an IPC trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices. TUC and other trusted sources of suppliers can be found on IPC’s QML/QPL (Qualified Product Listing) database.
