Techform peelable mask is a high-temperature flexible solder masking compound specially formulated of natural latex rubber. Prevent solder from flowing into contacts, terminals, screw heads and plated through holes.

Latex has been chemically enhanced so that it is heat stable enough for wave soldering processes. Effectively mask and protect the board from the time it is manufactured, through all assembly and reflow operations.
NOTE: Not recommended on bare copper because ammonia may cause discoloration.

Features & Benefits

  • Fast cure
  • Easily peelable
  • Will not tarnish gold or phosphor bronze
  • Protects delicate components
  • Nonflammable
  • NOTE: The 16 oz. bottle (part #53-4001-0533) is being discontinued and replaced by an 8 oz. bottle (53-4008-0533).

FAQ's

Can temporary solder mask be left on the PCB permanently?

Temporary solder mask is intended to be just that – temporary. Manufacturers of solder masks, like Chemtronics, always recommend removing the mask because there is no testing to support doing otherwise. If you decide to leave the solder mask on as a permanent part of the PCB, you will have to do your own functional and reliability testing to ensure it does not cause a problem.

How High of a Temperature Can Temporary Solder Mask Withstand?

Solder mask is engineered to withstand molten solder temperature for the very brief time (about a second) it is exposed in a typical wave soldering process. Most commercially available masks should be able to withstand melting point temperatures of lead-based and lead-free solder, up to 650°F (343°C). As exposure time is lengthened, like in a reflow oven, there is more potential the mask will bubble, char, and become brittle. How long a mask can withstand extreme temperatures depends on the thickness of the bead, and the type of mask.

Does temporary solder mask leave an ionic residue?

No, temporary solder mask will not leave behind ionic residue that can lead to dendritic grown and board failure.

How To Use Spot Mask for Wave Soldering & Conformal Coating
Spot mask, commonly called “temporary solder mask”, can be used to protect open thru-holes or “vias” in wave soldering. Solder does not wet or stick to it, and it withstands soldering temperatures without charring and bubbling. When you are done, the mask is either peeled off or washed off in your P...
