Light Cure Maskant for Electronics

Intertronics reports that DYMAX Speedmask 9-7001 offers significant time saving in assembly of electronics connectors and other board level components to PCBs.

Curing with UV/visible light takes seconds, and the pink maskant enables easy visual checks, while its low shrinkage rate ensures accurate and reliable coverage.

Speedmask 9-7001 is designed for protecting connectors and board-level areas from both solvent-based and light-curable conformal coatings. Intertronics says 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 said to be 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 and is designed to provide protection of connectors with no discoloration or corrosion. According to Intertronics, it is extremely thixotropic and is ideal for manual or automated dispensing onto boards or components that may be difficult to mask.
