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.

Nolan Johnson speaks with Michael Gay of Isola and Chris Hunrath of Insulectro about the release of their new halogen-free, high-thermal reliability material, which they hope fills the gap in the market between epoxies and polyimides.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: Supply Chain and Material Price Pressures

04/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
EIPC’s seventh Technical Snapshot webinar on April 14 was timely and appropriate. In the context of current supply chain issues and material price pressures facing the PCB industry, particularly in Europe, the EIPC team brought together an outstanding group of experts—each a leading authority in his field—to analyse and comment upon the areas of concern and to respond to questions raised by a capacity audience. As Alun Morgan said, “If you don’t use the European supply chain, you won’t have it anymore!”
