RBP Releases Circutek CC-720 PTH Acid Cleaner Conditioner


Reading time ( words)

RBP Chemical Technology has recently released Circutek CC-720 PTH Acid Cleaner Conditioner.

Circutek CC-720™ is an acidic cleaner/conditioner for use in the electroless copper metallization process in the PCB industry. It is formulated to remove fingerprints, light soil and other contaminants from copper foil. It also conditions non-metallic surfaces including glass fiber fabric and multiple resin systems used in the construction of high-reliability rigid, rigid-flex and flexible printed circuit boards.

The Circutek CC-720 is formulated to affect maximum adsorption of palladium tin catalyst to insure uniform deposition of the subsequent electroless copper deposit.

Positive Customer Impact

Circutek CC-720 provides the fabricator with wide process latitude with respect to enhancing the chemisorption of the palladium-tin catalyst without building up a heavy conditioning film on the interconnect and resin-glass surfaces. The Circutek CC-720 is acidic in nature and is free-rinsing. Many competitive conditioners on the market often over-condition the resin, leaving it difficult to rinse film. This excessive film causes over adsorption of the catalyst that often leads to defects such as hole-wall pullaway (HWPA) and interconnect defect (ICD)

The Circutek CC-720 is another innovation in RBP’s Circutek PTH Process Technology portfolio.

An Excerpt From the Book ‘Thermal Management: A Fabricator’s Perspective’

09/07/2020 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
Thermal management in the printed circuit board (PCB) world is big business! A recent Markets and Markets report projects the thermal management market to reach $16 billion by the year 2024 with an average CAGR of 8% over that period. We have chosen to focus this book on providing designers a thermal management desk reference on the most current thermal management techniques and methods from a PCB fabrication perspective, including a case study on an extreme mixed-technology design that we recently produced. We hope you find value in our efforts.
