WORKMANSHIP STANDARD FOR POLYMERIC APPLICATION ON ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLIES
|Publication Date:||7 October 2016|
This standard prescribes NASA's technical and quality assurance requirements for polymeric applications for electrical and electronic assemblies.
This publication sets forth requirements for staking, conformal coating, bonding, and encapsulation of components used in electronic hardware.
This standard is approved for use by NASA Headquarters and NASA Centers, including Component Facilities and Technical and Service Support Centers, and may be cited in contract, program, and other Agency documents as a technical requirement. This standard may also apply to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory or to other contractors, grant recipients, or parties to agreements only to the extent specified or referenced in their contracts, grants, or agreements.
This standard applies to critical work, as defined by NPD 8730.5. Critical work is any task that if performed incorrectly or in violation of prescribed requirements poses a credible risk of loss of human life; serious injury; loss of a Class A, B, or C payload (see NPR 8705.4); loss of a Category 1 or Category 2 mission (see NPR 7120.5); or loss of a mission resource valued at greater than $2M (e.g., NASA space flight hardware, Government test or launch facility).Use of the term "supplier" applies to any entity who is manufacturing hardware in accordance with the requirements herein including NASA Centers, NASA prime contractors, and subcontractors.
