IPC Awards IPC-4101 Qualified Products Listing to Ventec International Group

Reading time ( words)

Ventec International Group is delighted to announce an IPC-4101 Qualified Products Listing (QPL). The IPC's validation services program has qualified VT-90H and VT-901 to specification sheet 41 of IPC-4101E, specification for base materials for rigid and multilayer printed boards. An intensive two-day audit was also completed where the manufacturing practices, test methods and conformance requirements of IPC-4101 were reviewed.

VT-90H (UL-94 HB) and VT-901 (UL-94 V0) are exceptional material solutions for high reliability ML rigid and flex rigid PCBs for use in thermally challenging environments, with high Td (VT-901=395, VT-90H=408), a Tg of 250oC and Low-Axis CTE (50). Both polyimide materials provide the extremely high reliability performance particularly demanded by military and aerospace as well as downhole drilling and similarly challenging applications.

Ventec manufactures, fabricates and distributes all VT-90H and VT-901 polyimide from AS9100 accredited facilities, using specially designed treaters with multiple stage filtration systems and 100% Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) for prepreg FOD-control. The same specialist equipment is used for the production of thin-core laminates for use in the most demanding space and aerospace PCB applications.

Mark Goodwin, COO USA & EMEA of Ventec International Group commented: "Applying for an IPC Qualified Product Listing (QPL) for our polyimide laminate and prepreg provides an independent endorsement of the quality of our production controls and materials for use in high reliability mil/aero applications. The IPC QPL is a trusted reference list for the entire electronics supply chain. As a world leader in the production of high performance laminates and prepregs, we are delighted to be the first copper clad laminate manufacturer to have a polyimide material added to the IPC QPL following a rigorous facility audit, as well as meeting the requirements of the qualification testing program at an independent test laboratory."  

IPC's Validations Services QPL/QML Program was developed to promote supply chain verification. It also provides auditing and certification of electronics companies' products, and identifies processes which conform to IPC standards.

"Ventec has differentiated itself from the competition by becoming part of IPC's global network of trusted industry sources," said Randy Cherry, IPC director of Validation Services. "We are pleased to recognize Ventec as the first member of trusted QPL suppliers to meet IPC 4101 from the country of China."
