Electronic Circuit boards must perform as intended and should be tested against fungal contamination.Military fabrics and equipment are designed to work in extreme conditions and often require stringent testing in order to be accepted for use by the US DOD and other government agencies.

Military antimicrobial testing is important (and generally a requirement) because materials used in military settings can be exposed to a significant range of possible microbial contaminants beyond the ‘normal’ exposure of most fabrics and equipment. Knowing what to test for and under which environmental factors a material may be exposed to can narrow the range of required military testing. Testing in conditions that replicate the actual environment (“in situ”) can be critical for military products.

With extreme exposure to environmental conditions and microbial contamination, testing military products before they are used in the field is an important part of product development and performance. Military products functionality can be compromised by microbial growth; particularly, fungal growth can devastate the function of a product and inhibit its intended performance.

MIL-STD 810 and JSS 55555 “Penta-Five” are two such methods which have specific testing requirements that a material must pass before being accepted in global military markets. Another common anti-fungal method includes MIL-PRF-28800F.

Biodegradation Testing

Additional tests include MIL-PRF 87937 for fuel and lubricant biodegradation.
