MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions Releases M-Copper EF Process

Reading time ( words)

MacDermid Enthone Electronics Solutions, a MacDermid Performance Solutions business, announces the release of the M-Copper EF process, a premium quality electroless copper metallization process that operates at the industry’s lowest cost-of-ownership. M-Copper EF addresses the high volume, low cost electroless copper market space. 

M-Copper EF offers excellent hole wall coverage, reliability, and process stability in just a single pass, even when used over a wide range of through hole dimensions and bath loading. It is because of this that M-Copper EF is able to deliver large cost savings compared with competitive electroless copper systems. Additionally, M-Copper EF is highly concentrated, providing savings on chemical inventory and granting customers the flexibility to purchase their own caustic and formaldehyde. Evolved from the high performing electroless coppers of MacDermid Enthone legacy, M-Copper EF was developed specifically to overcome the poor quality of electroless coppers from low-price commodity suppliers. These quality and productivity improvements result in the lowest overall cost to our customers. 

M-Copper EF also features the innovative M-Activate HA, a 32 ppm palladium activator bath that results in drastically reduced dragout and make-up costs. The savings and advantages that our customers can receive from this innovative new activation technology are another reason that fabricators are deciding to make the switch to the M-Copper EF process. 

Bill Bowerman, Director of Metallization, noted, “The release of the M-Copper EF process demonstrates MacDermid Enthone’s commitment to partner with PCB fabricators in providing high reliability solutions with outstanding value-in-use to help our customers maintain a competitive position in the industry.“

Catching up with EISO Enterprises’ President Gary Chien

While there are many Chinese companies now selling in the United States, I wanted to find one in Taiwan that is penetrating the U.S. market. I was delighted to come across EISO Enterprise Co. Ltd., a printed circuit board fabricator located in Taiwan. I know that the American companies are usually looking for PCB global partners in countries other than China, which made my conversation with Gary (Jung Kun) Chien all the more interesting, especially when he shared his thoughts on the U.S-China trade wars.
