Hi Dave,

Thanks for your response. HAST is an acronym for Highly Accelerated Stress Testing. Instead of the conventional PCT or Autoclave which requires say 168 hours, HAST can tremendously shorten the time.

There has been correlation being established but these vary per package application.

Thanks again, Benji
