Arlon Electronic Materials is pleased to announce that IPC's Validation Services Program has extended the IPC-4101E Qualified Products Listing (QPL) to seven more polyimide products. 

Arlon produces and sells military-grade, copper-clad laminates, prepregs and packaging substrates to the global electronics industry.  Arlon successfully qualified their products 85N, 35N, 84N, 85HP and 33N to polyimide specification sheet 40 and 41 of IPC-4101E, Specification for Base Materials for Rigid and Multilayer Printed Boards.  For polyimide specification sheet 42, Arlon submitted and passed with products 37N and 38N.  Arlon also completed an intensive two-day audit in February 2018 where their manufacturing practices, test methods and IPC-4101 conformance requirements were reviewed.  

Arlon met or exceeded IPC’s Validation Services QPL requirements for producing base materials used by printed circuit board manufacturers in the military electronics industry.  The company is now listed as an IPC-4101 trusted source capable of manufacturing in accordance with industry best practices for specification sheets 40, 41 and 42.

Arlon President Brad Foster said, “IPC’s offering of validation services to the industry is an important first step to informing OEMs and fabricators which materials IPC has qualified. Because of Arlon’s long-standing history of supplying tried and proven products into military, avionic and space applications, we felt it was important for us to meet IPC’s QPL requirements for IPC-4101 on slash sheets 40, 41 and 42.  Arlon is the only laminator to date, to gain IPC’s QPL recognition with all three polyimide slash sheets. Meeting IPC’s QPL requirements reaffirms to our customers that they can trust in the products they purchase from Arlon.” 

Arlon now has the following products QPL listed:

For IPC-4101/40: 85N,  33N, 35N, 84N,  85HP
For IPC-4101/41: 85N,  33N, 35N, 84N,  85HP
For IPC-4101/42: 37N,  38N
