Etching Rate of FeCl3 to Nickel and Copper Surface
Etchant for Nickel, Palladium and Copper. Is there an etchant for removing Copper and Nickel; if possible Pd also. Is Nitric acid a good option?Nishath Y [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]

I had difficulty in etching copper panel with one side plated with nickel by using FeCl3, could anyone told me the etching rate of nickel and copper?Charles [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]
You haven't given enough information to answer your question. Need to know concentration, temperature, condition of copper surface, etc. I suggest you use a test panel and measure the rate directly.
If you are having problems etching I would also suggest you look closely at the surface conditions to make sure you don't have something on the surface acting as an etch resist.
