PC board protection
« on: April 21, 2015, 06:16:46 PM »
Hallo All, just a quick question. Do you spray the copper side of your pc boards with clear lacquer when you are finished with a project. I think at the coast it would be mandatory to do something like that or do you use something else. It is difficult to cover all tracks with lead.   
Thanks

For a while now I have been using Kontakt SK10 from Mantech.

It is a clear lacquer that is sprayed on and it protects the copper and is a flux as.

It seems to make the soldering a little easier and I really enjoy it.

Once the board has been sprayed, it needs 24hours to dry. Until then it can be tacky, but once dry, it is a pleasure to work with.
