Conductive ink protection

#30346

Conductive ink protection | 1 September, 2004

We have an up coming job that has conductive ink deposits on the solder side of the PCB for contact switches and a zebra strip that connects to an LCD display.

My question is... Do these need to be masked to protect them from the wave solder process ? Our process uses OA flux and aqueous cleaning.

If so any recommendations as to type of mask.

Thanks in advance

We'd guess that you can wave solder your connectors, but check with the ink supplier, just to be safe.
