The right maskant.


Several Years ago we purchased a green colored plating maskant manufactured by a company called "Turco". The carrier for the maskant (VOC) is perchlorethylene. When we ran out, we found our distributor was no longer in business and could not find the manufacturer either. None of the other maskants we have tried since will properley do the job, in fact our reject rate has quadrupled! The job itself is a .00035" thick nickel electroform from an aluminum mandrel which must be washed out in caustic soda. Does anybody know the whereabouts of Turco or of a perchlor based maskant? Help please.

In response to Anthony J Covey's question, Turco Products is in Long Beach, CA.

AC Products, Inc. manufactures a product similar to the Turco product which is solvated in perchloroethylene.
