Digital printing of an etch resist solution can revolutionize production of components where an acid etch process is used. Digital application makes it possible to create highly accurate placement of the etch resist allowing complex patterns or high precision and small detail areas. Such a process can transform expensive and highly wasteful processes in applications such as lamination press plates, fabrication of LCDs and the growing EMI and RFI shielding market. Solutions may also be possible for dielectric insulation offering huge benefits in many applications.
Sensient has a range of highly innovative solutions and services to enable emerging applications to benefit from digital technology. Sensient’s pioneering etch resist ink, Xennia Pyrite, is a UV curable solution offering outstanding performance in acid etch processes and allowing highly detailed patterned areas to remain whilst non-printed areas are removed through the etching process.
SensiJet Pyrite is a highly innovative functional ink allowing digital printing to transform production processes that use a chemical etch. Delivering the best in print accuracy and resistance to acid etch chemicals, Pyrite allows users to replace outdated technologies and join the digital revolution.
