MAR Tin Strip TP is a two part system which is used for stripping tin or tin/lead resist from printed circuit boards. MAR Tin Strip TP consists of TP Part A which removes the electroplate tin to the intermetallic layer. TP Part B strips the thin uniform intermetallic layer leaving the copper surface etch free while providing an anti-tarnish film over the copper surface. The system is designed for a two chamber automated horizontal spray systems.

The MAR Tin Strip TP system operates in a steady state for both the TP Part A and TP Part B. The use of an auto dosing unit is required to control the solution specific gravity especially in the TP Part A chamber. Based on the metal loading of 100 to 200 g/l of tin, the specific gravity of the TP Part A should be controlled between 1.25 – 1.35. The replenishment of TP Part B should be set at 25 – 35% of that of the feed rate of TP Part A.
Most horizontal spray systems are constructed using stainless steel or titanium which is suitable material of both the TP Part A & Part B.
There should be no rinse between the first stage, TP Part A and the second stage, TP Part B. The use of effective pinch roller must be used to avoid or reduce the carry over of the TP Part A into the second chamber of the TP Part B.
MAR TP Part A
For optimum operation, the TP Part A in the first chamber should be maintained above 80%.
MAR TP Part B
For optimum operation, the TP Part B in the first chamber should be maintained above 85%.
