Joseph Federico of NJ MET Announces Publication of US Tech Article on Solvent Testing
Joseph Federico, VP and Director of NJ MET, announced the publication of his article Issues in Solvent Testing for Counterfeits in the October, 2014 issue of US Tech. The article is available online and in the print edition.
The article describes the proper procedures for solvent testing for remarked and resurfaced electronic components and the occurrence of false positive results when a solvent test is applied to the wrong type of electronic component. Examples of false positive results are shown where the Dynasolve and Mineral Spirits tests return false positive results when used on authentic can packaged devices.
“NJ MET has developed a lot of expertise in correctly applying the appropriate solvent testing procedures, depending on the type of electronic component being tested,” said Joseph Federico. “We apply that expertise in all parts of our component testing programs. Thorough testing with the appropriate procedures is necessary to identify counterfeit components and keep them out of the supply chain.”
