Reading time ( words)

Dr. Jin Zhang, President of PhiChem Corporation announced today that PhiChem has been accepted as a member of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Standards Technical Panel (STP) for Printed Wiring Boards STP796, which covers standards UL746E and UL796. UL746E is the UL Standard for Polymeric Materials – Industrial Laminates, Filament Wound Tubing, Vulcanized Fiber, and Materials Used in Printed-Wiring Board, while UL796 is the Standard for Printed-Wiring Boards. An STP is made up of qualified member companies that have a common interest or stake in maintaining particular standards. These companies are entrusted to manage changes in these standards under the chairmanship of the UL.  

Companies are accepted into the STP based on their status as a supplier, user, general interest group, OEM or other relevant category. An effort is made on the part of UL, to have an STP membership list is balanced, with no particular category having a numerical voting advantage. Both of the standards overseen by STP796 are pertinent to the qualification and listing of materials and boards for the printed circuit industry. PhiChem is excited to be part of the standards development process managed by this STP, and at the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to printed wiring board standards in the future.
