Product overview

• 10 clear transparencies suitable for direct printing with laser printers
• Print your PCB designs directly onto this material ready for etching
• Compatible with most laser printers
• LaserStar has a 75 micron base with a special coating for high resolution keying and fixing
• This film will accept copier toner to use artworks from pre-printed originals
• Allows consistent and professional PCB's to be produced
• Film is the same on both sides so its very easy to work with
• More reliable than ink or transfer based systems

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good tracks at last! Pleased with these sheets. Not been getting enough dark/light difference, even for two normal transparencies over laid. Needs longer in light box, 6 min vs 1.5min for normal transparency. Several test samples. Works best for half strength developer Universal PCB Developer 5g per 100ml not 10g. First time good track produced with Maplin pre-sensitised board. Suspect even blacker for ink-jet but not working properly.

Sorry, but I don't understand. How do you get the laser print on to the copper? Do you iron it on or, or put it in the oven or can you solder to the film directly? thanks. . . .

Asked by: radioandrew
Please read the earlier post. As far as I can see you use UV light. (sorry, I did not read enough before I asked the question!) Thanks

Hi Anonymous thanks for your answer, but I still don't understand how you get your layout design on to the PCB from the film. Is it heat transferred - like Press & Peel - or some other method?

Asked by: Dave
Typically this method is used with UV exposure style etching. The printout is placed over the UV sensitive plate and exposed to strong UV light. Any areas where the black printout occurs will be protected and left behind after the exposed areas have disappeared.

I understand that you print your PCB layout on to this film, but what do you do with it then? None of the answers given describes exactly how it works!

Asked by: Dave
This allows you to print your designs, then use them on a laser printer to product your own PCB layout.

does this sheet do the same job as the blue press and peel? How do yo transfer the design onto the circuit board please?

Asked by: Shawn
Yes these do a similar job, but you would use a laser printer to lay them down rather than UV or solution.

The specification describes this film as transparent, does that mean 100% transparent - like a sheet of glass, or does it have a slightly grey and foggy appearance? Thanks

Asked by: mike
It does have a slightly gray and foggy appearance.
