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, in the print edition and in the digital edition of the publication.

Joseph Federico is pleased to announce the publication of his article by US Tech. The article, entitled "Issues in Solvent Testing for Counterfeits", was published online on October 17, and appears in the October, 2014 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.”
