Product details

Printed Circuit Board Etch Resistant Marker Pen

A nylon tipped pen for fast fabrication of perfect printed circuit boards. The ink adheres perfectly to copper and is completely resistant to ferric chloride and other usual etchant solutions. Draw the planned circuit onto a thoroughly cleaned copper laminated board and allow to dry. Then immerse the board in etching fluid until the copper is dissolved. The ink can then be removed with Degreasing Solvent or PCB Cleaner, and the circuit board is then ready to be drilled and assembled. This pen is capable of producing thin, delicate lines allowing for quite a condensed track layout if required. It can also be used as an indelible marker felt tip pen for an enormous range of materials, especially metals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works almost perfectly Tried using this on a PCB for etching with hydrogen peroxide, vinegar and salt but it proved a spectacular failure. Made another attempt using sodium persulfate and it worked perfectly. We needed a pen thin enough that we could fit all the traces we needed on the board itself and this pen was it. This pen is only suited for when the PCB is being bathed in etching solution. Any methods involving rubbing the solution on the board is likely to rub any lines you've drawn away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PCB Permanent Pen I brought this pen a few weeks ago to draw my PCB design on PCB board for etching. The Pen has a fine tip for intricate work. I found that the pen can dissolve/fall off the PCB during etching. I recommend drawing over the previous lines several times to make lines more permanent. After Etching the PCB in Sodium Persulfate, I removed the pen lines using Nail Polish Remover. Great Pen.
