Solder mask pretreatment

Excellent adhesion to solder mask creates an accurate pattern/mask formation.


CZ-8100, CZ-8101

These organic acid-type microetching solutions create a super-roughened copper surface. The unique copper surface topography helps to achieve high copper-to-resin adhesion. As copper surface roughening agents, CZ-8100 and CZ-8101 are widely available for processes where a high level of adhesion is required, such as pretreatment for build-up resin lamination, dry film lamination or solder mask application.
