WonderMASK® PX is a temporary, peelable, latex solder mask designed to dry in half the time of standard peelable solder masks. It is hand applied and can withstand fluxing, wave soldering and cleaning operations. It effectively masks and protects open through-holes and underside components in a wave soldering process, and can be used as a conformal coatings mask.

WonderMASK PX can remain on all areas of the board until ready for test, and then, be easily peeled away. In addition, WonderMASK PX is ideally suited for situations where a thick coat of mask is required. WonderMASK PX has been specially formulated to cure homogenously, virtually eliminating any limit on the deposition thickness.

WonderMASK PX is not recommended for use on bare copper as it contains a sufficient concentration of ammonia to cause discoloration. For use on bare copper, WonderMASK P (part # 2211) is recommended.

Specifications: Meets MIL-STD-2000 paragraph 5.3.18 parts a, b, and d.

FAQ's

How do I figure out the shelf life of a product?

The shelf life of a product can be found on either the technical data sheet (TDS), available on the product page, or by looking on the certificate on conformance (COC). The COC can be downloaded by going to https://www.techspray.com/coc. Once you have the shelf life, you will need to add it to the manufacture date for a use-by date. The manufacture date can be identified by the batch number. The batch code used on most of our products are manufacture dates in the Julian Date format. The format is YYDDD, where YY = year, DDD = day. For example, 19200 translates to the 200th day of 2019, or July 19, 2019. This webpage explains and provides charts to help interpret our batch numbers: https://www.techspray.com/batch-codes.


How do I avoid peelable solder mask from breaking off and leaving residue behind?

The follow are factor to consider when trying to avoid breakage: 1) Curing – Partially cured mask will have more of a tendency to break or leave residue. 2) Temperature and duration in extreme heat – Mask is designed for wave soldering, which is about a second of exposure to molten solder temperatures (generally 550°-650°F). If the mask is sent through a reflow oven the duration is much longer, which can lead to more mask brittleness. If the mask is exposed to high-temperature solder (e.g. silver), it can also lead to more brittleness. 3) Application method – When hand applying, we recommend holding the bottle at about a 60° angle, rather than upright at 90°. That tends to apply the material as a thick blanket over the areas to be masked. When the bottle is held at 90°, the mask is generally applied thinner, and is forced through holes and around components. Those thin areas are more likely to become brittle and stay behind, and mask pushed into holes and around components is harder to remove, so more likely to break.

How To Use Spot Mask for Wave Soldering & Conformal Coating
Say you’re a contract manufacturer of printed circuit boards (PCBs), and your customer just made an engineering change that leaves several thru-hole vias open. If you run it through the wave as is, and solder over the vacant holes, the PCB won’t function properly. How do you keep the p...
