UV/Visible light cure maskant introduced for electronics
Intertronics have introduced the new DYMAX Speedmask 9-7001, which offers significant time saving in assembly of electronics connectors and other board level components to PCBs. Once cured in seconds with UV/visible light, the (pink) maskant enables easy visual checks, while its low shrinkage rate ensures accurate reliable coverage.
Speedmask 9-7001 is designed for protecting connectors and board-level areas from both solvent based and light-curable conformal coatings. Cured masks withstand wave solder and solder reflow temperatures and are easily removed in one piece, saving time and eliminating the concern of ionic contamination or residue left behind by other masking methods. After removal, the residue free surface passes SIR testing, and is highly effective in maintaining the integrity of masked areas during process.
This halogen and silicone-free maskant is compatible with gold and copper connector pins. It very quickly cures upon exposure to light, and is designed to provide protection of connectors with no discoloration or corrosion. It is extremely thixotropic and is ideal for manual or automated dispensing onto boards or components that may be difficult to mask.
