RBP Chemical Technology Announces the Release of MAGNUM N-499 for PCBs

RBP is proud to announce the release of MAGNUM N-499, an additional innovation to their PTH process product offering for printed circuit boards. MAGNUM N-499 is a specially designed neutralizer based on hydrogen peroxide that removes residues of manganese dioxide from drilled holes after permanganate desmear in preparation for metallization of multilayer circuit boards.  MAGNUM N-499 is effective on a variety of resin materials including high performance epoxy resins and polyimide.  It is easily replenished and does not require circuit boards to be dried prior to processing.  MAGNUM N-499 should be used in conjunction with MAGNUM K-401 OXIDIZER or MAGNUM N-501 OXIDIZER for optimal performance in the desmear sequence.
