RBP Chemical Technology is pleased to introduce another key waste treatment product to serve the metal finishing, electronics and photochemical milling industries. MetalTreat Chelate Eliminator-8 is formulated to eliminate waste of very highly chelated waste streams containing heavy metals.
MAGNUM S-450 is used to condition holes after drilling and before the desmear step in preparation for metallization. It is effective on a variety of resin materials including epoxy and polyimide and is replenishable. MAGNUM S-450 does not require circuit boards to be dried prior to processing.
VersaPrep is a specialty formulated product designed to clean and microetch a wide variety of metallic substrates. It is particularly useful in removing metallic oxides and providing a micro-roughened surface to enhance dry film adhesion as well as adhesion of other materials to the surface of the metal. VersaPrep easily deoxidizes and micro-etches copper, copper alloys, stainless steel, aluminum and Inconel.
RBP Chemical Technology is pleased to announce the release of Equipment Cleaner IV. Equipment Cleaner IV removes water hardness residues, photoresist scum and metal salt deposits from chemical processing equipment. The new process is specifically developed for the printed circuit board industry and is very useful for spray equipment. It causes no damage to metal or plastic parts and is completely odorless, making it the ideal process for printed circuit boards.
LDI Strip 77 a semi-aqueous photoresist stripper formulated for stripping very fine line and high density printed circuit boards. With properly controlled plating, LDI Strip 77 effectively produces particles 2 mil in diameter and smaller, greatly facilitating filtration. LDI Strip 77 provides complete resist removal with standard Dry Film and LDI Dry film. LDI Strip 77 contains a specially formulated additive package that protects metal surfaces against corrosion, including copper and tin. In addition the LDI 77 Strip enables ease of inspection at outerlayer AOI. LDI Strip 77 can be used in both spray and immersion applications. Working concentration of the LDI Strip 77 will vary based on customer specific processing requirements.
