This notification is to inform our customers that Henkel, a supplier of non-conductive epoxy, is relocating their production site from Rancho Dominguez, CA, USA to Songdo, South Korea and will be providing products from the new location starting in January 2022.
Henkel is moving their facility to a location that is closer to where their customers are manufacturing their products. This change will affect the Impinj Monza X-8K Dura, Monza 4E Dura, and Monza 4QT Dura products. All three products use the Loctite ABLESTIK 8900NC epoxy.
According to Henkel, the manufacturing site change is a Class B (minor) change and will not impact the form, fit, or function of their epoxy product. Impinj will conduct an evaluation of the epoxy from the new Songdo, Korea site to ensure there is no performance or reliability change from its original Rancho Dominguez, USA site. The qualification plan will include a set of tests per AEC-Q100 and JEDEC standards and is expected to be completed by the end of August 2021.
The Henkel 5M1E impact and risk assessment and the Impinj qualification plan are outlined in the downloadable PDF.
