New Photoimageable Soldermask for Laser Direct Imaging and Direct Imaging
During the show, Sun Chemical will launch the newest addition to the #1 most used soldermask product family line in Europe—Imagecure Soldermask. The new Imagecure XV501T DI photoimageable soldermask for laser direct imaging (LDI) and direct imaging (DI), is a liquid product which dries via evaporation to provide a film that can be sensitized by laser, laser diode, LED, or UVDI exposure.
With resolution capabilities of 50μm (2mm) or less, exposure sensitivity of 80-200 mJ/cm², resistance to hot air solder leveling (HASL) processing, and compatibility with a range of nickel/gold and immersion tin chemistries, Imagecure XV501T DI is the most advanced soldermask for LDI and DI on the market.
Imagecure XV501T DI provides excellent adhesion to and encapsulation of copper tracks, is halogen-free, and compliant with the Restrictions of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directives.
Designed for screen printing, curtain coating, air or electrostatic spray, the Imagecure Soldermask product line features 30-50μ solder dam capabilities. Recognized as a trusted solution for rigid printed circuit boards that has received global approval by OEMs in various markets, Imagecure Soldermask is available in a range of colors and halogen-free varieties.
Convenient and Cost-Effective Peelable Mask for Printed Circuits
Sun Chemical will showcase its EPR5000 Peelable Mask, a convenient and cost-effective mask which meets stringent health and safety requirements around the world. Optimized for high-temperature soldering and chemical plating, EPR5000 is also applicable to lead-free soldering processes. EPR5000 delivers exceptional adhesion, easy removability, a wide process window, 4.0mm hole tenting capabilities, and is available in a range of colors and halogen-free varieties.
Advanced Materials for Printed Electronics and Electronics Manufacturing
Sun Chemical will highlight a range of conductive inks, dielectrics and resists for human interface machines, RFID, OLED panels, thin-film photovoltaic designs, printed antenna, touchscreens and more. Optimized for various printing processes and substrates, Sun Chemical’s technologies for printed electronics are tailor-made to meet customers’ needs.
Sun Chemical will also display graphic inks, coatings, adhesives and tapes which provide electronics manufacturers with materials for elegant decoration, functionality and durability.
