Dymax Corporation (Torrington, CT) has launched maskant SpeedMask 9-20479-B-Rev-A, a blue, light-curable peelable maskant for PWB connectors and board level protection. This SpeedMask resin is designed for protection of electronic components and assemblies, provides protection from reflow or wave soldering operations, and shields keep-out areas during conformal coating applications. According to the company:
- This solvent and silicone free maskant is compatible with gold and copper connector pins.
- It is extremely thixotropic and is ideal for manual or automated dispensing on boards or components as an alternative to other masking options.
- This light-curable maskant withstands wave solder and reflow temperatures and is easily removed, eliminating the concern of ionic contamination or silicone left behind by other masking methods.
