NPR-80 Series

Flex Solder Mask(2 component type)


Photo-image, alkaline developed type solder mask.
These grades have been applied for the products such as suspension in HDD, drivers of FPD, circuit board of Printer, and T-BGA, COF, TAB, with fine patterned circuit board since 1994.


There are several advantages in comparison with PI cover-lay film.


  • Performing good resistance for gold plating treatment.
  • Unnecessary to use a punching process and mold.
  • Being capable of resolving 80μm opening.
  • Enabling to construct a solder dam with 50μm
  • Enabling to execute simultaneous coat on Rigid-Flex PCB.
