What is MIL-I-46058C and why is my conformal coating qualified to this standard?

The Mil Standard for conformal coating has been inactive for new designs since November 1998. However, the standard is still widely used for independent certification of conformal coatings. All companies tested to the Mil standard are listed on a Qualified Product List (QPL).

Conformal coatings listed on the QPL will have been through rigorous 3rd party testing.

Caution should be shown when examining conformal coating datasheets which state MEET the requirements of MIL-I-46058C since they conformal coatings will likely not have been tested by the independent laboratory.

About Dr Lee Hitchens

Dr Hitchens has been working in the electronics industry and the area of conformal coatings for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support. He has also been training people for almost the same amount of time in all areas of conformal coating whether that is materials & equipment selection, process development or troubleshooting to help them solve their particular problem. Recently, he decided that the industry needed a specific place where all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings could be collated for users to find easily and use in their own production process. So, Nexus was born and he began the Nexus eBook project.
