Ventec International Group's IPC-4101 Qualified Products Listing (QPL) has been extended to now include /40. The IPC's Validation Services Program therefore qualifies VT-90H and VT-901 to specification sheets 40 and 41 of IPC-4101E, Specification for Base Materials for Rigid and Multilayer Printed Boards. An intensive two-day audit was completed where the manufacturing practices, test methods and conformance requirements of IPC-4101 were reviewed.
Ventec met or exceeded the IPC Validation Services QPL requirements for producing base materials used by printed circuit board manufacturers in the electronics industry. Ventec is proud to add further specifications to its listing as an IPC-4101 trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices.
VT-90H (UL-94 HB) and VT-901 (UL-94 V0) are exceptional material solutions for high reliability multilayer rigid and flex-rigid PCBs for use in thermally challenging environments, with high Td (VT-901=395, VT-90H=408), a Tg of 250°C 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 specialised 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: "The IPC Qualified Product Listing (QPL) of 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 and we are delighted to be the first copper clad laminate manufacturer to have a polyimide material added to the validation services listing by meeting the requirements of both the rigorous facility audit and the qualification testing program at an independent test laboratory. We are fully committed to consistently meet and exceed the strict requirements of industry standards such as IPC-4101E."
IPC's Validation 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 in the polyimide market 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 for becoming a trusted supplier conforming to IPC-4101E."
