What is the benefit to requiring 25 micron nominal hole plating as per IPC class 3 ?

Increased reliability including improved z-axis expansion resistance. Not requiring this could result in blow holes or outgassing, electrical continuity problems (inner layer separation, barrel cracking) during assembly or risk of field failures under load conditions. IPC Class 2 (standard for most factories) provides 20% less copper.
