Why is the IPC important in conformal coating standards?

The Institute for Printed Circuits (IPC) was founded in 1957 with the aim to standardize the assembly and production requirements of electronic equipment and assemblies.

Since its formation, it has been adopted by many companies around the world as the standard for electronic processing and conformal coating.

While these Standards are Self-Certification, it is still possible to have 3rd parties complete the Standard’s test work.

The most crucial IPC  conformal coating standards are

  • IPC A 610 Acceptability of Electronic Assemblies Standard
  • IPC-CC-830B Qualification and Performance of Electrical Insulating Compound for Printed Wiring Assemblies
  • IPC-HDBK-830 Guidelines for Design, Selection and Application of Conformal Coatings
