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.

PCB Sourcing Using PCQR2

03/30/2021 | Al Block, Naji Norder, and Chris Joran, National Instruments
In a global market, it is often difficult to determine the best PCB suppliers for your technology needs, while also achieving the lowest costs for your products. Considering each PCB supplier has their own niche in terms of equipment, process, and performance, uniform test data from the IPC-9151D Process Capability, Quality, and Relative Reliability (PCQR2) Benchmark Test Standard can help find the right source for the board based on its specific technology requirements.

IPC APEX EXPO 2021 Keynote: Travis Hessman on ‘The Great Digital Transformation’

03/10/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Wednesday’s Premier Keynote at IPC APEX EXPO 2021 came from Travis Hessman, editor-in-chief of IndustryWeek, “a website and magazine dedicated to manufacturing leadership, operational excellence and the technologies that make it possible.” An energetic and animated presenter, a powerful storyteller and visibly passionate about digital manufacturing, Hessman made it clear at the outset that his goal was not to hype an already over-hyped industry, nor to focus on the technologies themselves, but to walk-through the process of transformation.

The Benefits of Statistical Process Control

02/17/2021 | Kurt Palmer, Bürkle North America
The concepts of statistical process control were initially developed by Dr. Walter Shewhart of Bell Laboratories in the 1920s, and were expanded upon by Dr. W. Edwards Deming, who introduced SPC to Japanese industry after WWII. After early successful adoption by Japanese firms, SPC has now been incorporated by organizations around the world as a primary tool to improve product quality by reducing process variation.
