Extension of the accreditation in the field of technical cleanliness!


The scope of accreditation in the field of technical cleanliness was extended to include essential test procedures, in particular for the testing of electrical/electronic components, which will also become increasingly relevant in the field of e-mobility in the future.

Our laboratory is now accredited according to the latest DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 in all procedures of technical cleanliness tests according to the new ISO 16232:2018 and VDA 19.1. This accreditation according to ISO 16232:2018 and VDA 19.1 also covers our laboratory location in Dresden.

Further analyses or the identification of unknown organic materials by means of infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) according to ASTM E 1252 as well as tests in fluid technology - contamination of hydraulic fluid by means of the medium gravimetric method according to ISO 4405 and microscopic counting method according to ISO 4407/4406 are part of the accreditation for the laboratory location in Liptingen.

The scope of accreditation was extended with analyses of components in the field of technical cleanliness using ion chromatorography for the determination of ionic residues (salts such as bromide, chloride, fluoride, nitrate, nitrite, phosphate and sulphate) according to DIN EN ISO 10304-1, as well as the testing of dissolved cations in water according to DIN EN ISO 14911.

In particular, specific cleanliness tests of electrical/electronic components such as the tests according to IPC-TM-650 2.3.25 (ROSE - Restivity of Solvent Extract), IPC-TM-650 (Ionic Cleanliness Testing of Bare PWBs), IPC-TM-650 2. 3.28 (Ionic Analysis of Circuit Boards, Ion Chromatorgraphy Method) and IPC-TM-650 (Bare Printed Board Cleanliness by Ion Chromatography) the portfolio in the field of ionic impurities.
