IPC-9505 standard establishes uniform methods for testing electronic and electrical component parts, including both static and dynamic cleaning exposure tests to determine resistance to deleterious effects from exposure to the cleaning agent and mechanical energy used to deliver the cleaning agent to the part. For this document, the term ‘‘component parts’’ includes such items as capacitors, resistors, switches, relays, transformers, inductors, and others.
This document develops and delineates the details of the test methodology (methods) for general electronic assembly cleaning chemistry type compatibility with electronic assembly materials. The ‘‘new’’ methods and procedures may be used in place of Mil-Std-202 method 215 which does not accurately represent modern cleaning chemistries used in electronic assembly manufacturing processes.
This document is designed to be used for proactive (compatibility) and reactive (incompatibility) test methods. Compatibility is the interaction between materials sets which do not negatively impact the end use product. This may include removal of ﬂux while not interacting with the markings required for product use. Incompatibility is the interaction between materials sets which negatively impact the end use product. This may include removal of protective coatings and critical type markings.
