Stevenage Circuits Approves Use of Electra Polymers Direct Image Soldermask


Reading time ( words)

Stevenage Circuits have selected Electra Polymers EMP110 direct image spray soldermask for use on the AHK double-sided solder mask spray system in conjunction with their Limata, Orbotech Nuvogo and Orbotech Paragon direct imaging systems. The soldermask is designed specifically for use with DI equipment and optimised for high throughput and reliability. 

“Stevenage Circuits and Electra Polymers have mutually benefited from a long-standing relationship where innovative products have regularly been on offer at sustainable prices," said Technical Director Tim Gee. "The EMP110 DI material has proven to be a very capable alternative to our previously incumbent solder-mask, producing straight solder-mask sidewalls, benefits from reduced energy requirements for polymerisation (using both multiple wavelength UV and IR laser energy) whilst enabling solder-mask feature sizes of sub 50um to be reliably reproduced to meet with our current customer demands. In addition to the product range and capability on offer by Electra Polymers, service and support remains key to the continued success of Stevenage Circuits. Electra Polymers provided excellent cooperation during the EMP110 DI product integration process; we offer our thanks and look forward to the continuation of our relationship in to the future.” 

Ashley Steers, sales manager for Electra in Europe, commented, “The Electra EMP110 DI soldermask on the AHK spray system looks cosmetically great and to couple this with the DI systems Stevenage Circuits have invested in means the soldermask capabilities and quality are now second to none. Having a soldermask that has the versatility and reliability to run on 3 very different direct imaging machines is a real selling point.  I will be looking forward to strengthening our partnership with Stevenage Circuits and will enjoy working with Stevenage on new projects in the future.”
