Aerospace & Military Electronics (Avionics)
In early days, military electronics uses in aircraft and other equipment had to meet the MIL-STD-2000 standard. However, in 1995 the USA Secretary of Defense’s Specifications and Standards Reform Initiative, recommended cancellation of ten military standards identified as non-value added cost drivers. This included MIL-STD-2000 Standard Requirements for Soldered Electrical and Electronic Assemblies, thus the government phased out MIL-STD-2000 without replacement in June of 1995. One can still find references to MIL-STD-2000 in older military or commercial manuals in various parts of the world. However, these days military electronics and avionics follow the commercial ANSI J-STD-001 which is available through the IPC Association Connecting Electronics Industry
The IPC J-STD-001F is recognized worldwide as the sole industry-consensus standard covering soldering materials and processes. This revision includes support for both traditional solder alloys and for lead-free manufacturing. In regards to electronics cleaning, the standard require the use of specific approved products or cleaning processes. Instead, the J standard is based on cleanliness standards that must be met.
Banner Chemicals Precision Cleaning Solutions offers a wide variety of cleaning agents and processes that fit the current manufacturing process rather than redesigning the process to fit one cleaning product or process. In addition, Banner electronics cleaning are fully RoHS and REACH compliant with REACH. Halogen-Free products are also available.
