IPC-TR-587 technical report delivers results of a major study on conformal coating. In most manufacturing specifications, conformal coating thickness is defined as the thickness of the final polymer film on a flat, unencumbered surface of the assembly, however conformal coating thickness on other assembly and component surfaces is not characterized. IPC-TR-587 is a report outlining an IPC study of...

This addendum to IPC-TR-464 was released in April 1987 and represents the results of the task group study to evaluate and determine if the aging period recommended in the original Technical Report could be shortened and still provide the appropriate information on solderability retention.
This document details the test procedures, test results and team conclusions for the IPC Cleaning and Cleanliness Testing Program, Phase 3, Low Solids Flux in Ambient Air. This effort has been part of a multi-stage program to investigate material and process alternatives to the use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in electronics manufacturing. This Phase 3 effort has been dedicated to characterizing...
