UL Standard for Safety Flexible Materials Interconnect Constructions
|Publication Date:||18 September 2000|
These requirements apply to flexible, flex-to-install, rigid, and multilayer rigid flex composite interconnect constructions with and without stiffener and adhesive materials as flexible materials interconnect constructions (FMIC's) for use as components in devices or appliances. Compliance with these requirements does not indicate the product is acceptable for use as a component of an end product without further investigation.
The singlelayer and multilayer, and flexible, flex-to-install, and rigid interconnect constructions addressed by these requirements consist of conductors affixed to base material, with mid-board interconnections, and cover layer materials.

The suitability of additional stiffener and adhesive materials, not evaluated in accordance with the Stiffener bond strength test, Section 5.11, and Flammability tests, Section 5.13, are subject to the applicable end-use product construction and performance requirements. See Additional stiffener and adhesive (external bonding) materials, Section 7.12, for marking requirements for FMIC's provided with additional stiffener and adhesive materials.
