RBP Chemical Technology Announces the Introduction of LDI Strip 77 Fine-Line Photoresist Stripper

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.

The Importance of Surface Preparation

Today we are being asked by OEMs, particularly in the high-frequency space, for ways to minimize the amount of surface roughness to provide for enhanced electrical properties. Of course, when you minimize roughness you also run the risk of compromising the optimum adhesion of the smoothed material – especially if you don’t do any surface prep.
