Soldermask for Via Holes and Pads

Recently, Eurocircuits introduced a spray coating process for Soldermask, this brings many advantages including a thinner and more unified coating which helps us to meet today’s technology challenges. The Soldermask is imaged using a Dai Nippon Ledia Direct Imaging system; this improves registration accuracy and eliminates the need for Photo-tools. The spray coating of Soldermask is only […]
