Chemcut manufactures resist stripping systems for photo-imageable resists, screen printed resists, and metal etch resists.
Our photo-imageable resist stripping systems can be used with all of the common aqueous-based dry film photoresists used in the printed circuit board and chemical milling industries. Aqueous-based liquid photo-imageable (LPI) etching and plating resists, as well as aqueous strippable screen ink resists, may also be used.
Chemcut strippers can be integrated with Chemcut’s resist filter to extend stripping solution life significantly and automate the collection of stripped resist particles. As a result, daily operating costs are greatly reduced, and downtime for solution changeover and maintenance is minimized.
Because of ROHS, the most common metal resist strippers are manufactured to remove tin, but solder stripping equipment is still available. When necessary, metal resist stripping systems can be built with alternative materials and components to be compatible with specialized chemical solutions, such as ammonium bifluoride.
Automated Chemistry Management
Automated chemistry management systems are available for all Chemcut photo-imageable resist strippers and metal resist strippers. Automated chemistry management improves product quality by insuring a constant level of chemical activity, in addition to reducing the labor necessary to monitor and control the stripping bath.
