HI, i work for an EMS company and i got a few remarks on the solder mask question. In the manufacturing of PCBs there should be no difference if they use other color solder mask, but in the production of electronic assembly it could make a difference

I am having cleaning problems when processing PCB's which have TAIYO solder mask on them. After processing, hand soldering and cleaning, a sticky residue is remains, resulting in a cosmetically poor finish with tide marks etc. Other soldermasks do no

We sometimes use a peelable mask the the PCB manufacturer (board house) adds as part of their process. It may seem an expensive option but avoids: Raising P/o's for tape/peelable mask as consumables booking & inspection Booking out to the shop floo

Thanks Dave, and yes we can leave the solder there in this instance. These panels, 12up, are NCMR from the customer. The customer is saying that after the panels have been reflowed 5 times! solder starts to accumulate under the mask. Get this, My sen

Does anybody know how to remove solder mask from pads that were masked over.

Am looking for a dispensable water soluble solder mask or peelable solder mask that can be dispensed and be run through a reflow oven with no swelling or degradation. Any leads on any materials or manufacturers to contact?

Thanks Tim. Additional thoughts are: * We've talked here on SMTnet about hole fill previously. * That your ability to get hole fill is probably limited by mask in the hole makes us very uneasy, because hole could have varying levels of solder mask i

Just out of curiosity - what is the rationale behind specifying mask thicknes?

Excessive mask thickness also can wreak havoc on stencil printing.

Hi, I am currently using a peelable mask prior to wave soldering and have started exploring water soluble/washable masks. The mask will be used with water based and alcohol based flux. Are there any compatability issues to concider and how will this
