Resist Stripper 17 is an alkaline, water soluble liquid, which is added to water to remove aqueous and semi-aqueous dry film resists and alkaline soluble screen inks from circuit boards. It does contain a water-soluble glycol ether solvent.
Resist Stripper 17 is free of phenols, chromates, phosphates and silicones.
Resist Stripper 17 may be used by immersion (with or without air agitation) or in a pressure spray operation. While the stripping operation will not foam initially, a foam head may form after some resist is dissolved. Hubbard-Hall has several defoamers that are consistent with Resist Stripper 17.
