Oct 29, 2008

Greeley, CO � October 2008 � Florida CirTech Inc., a leading chemical blender to the Printed Circuit and Electronic Assembly industry, announces that Genesis Materials Technology (GMT) has recently dramatically improved the ENIG resistance of Florida CirTech's water-based AQ2000 LPI solder mask. AQ2000 LPI is now able to withstand the harsh chemical conditions found in the ENIG process.

The photo speed of AQ2000 LPI remains high, which shortens exposure time and increases throughput. Beta site testing has begun.

AQ2000 LPI is completely water-based and contains no solvents and no VOCs.

GMT is a company that manufacturers a patented VOC-free waterborne liquid photoresist and Liquid Photoimageable (LPI) solder mask and legend inks. These products have many positive technical attributes such as high resolution and also have the advantage of being very environmentally attractive in that there is no organic solvent in any of these products.
