RE: [TCML] PC boards
I'm using hydrochloride acid with hydrogen peroxide but with some
Cool down concentated 30-35% HCl acid, it's required if you are going to
etch large boards or you have not a lot of acid, because reaction are
exothermic and high temperature isn't good for peroxide. Put the acid and PC
board into plastic container and add a few drops of concentrated 30%
peroxid. Don't add peroxid directly to PC board but in distant corner and
move with container to mix the solution (locally increased concentration of
peroxid can be dangerous for PC board). You can drive speed of reaction by
adding more peroxid. If you aren't overshoot amount of peroxide, cooper will
dissolve fast but without any bubbles and fumes. If it bubbles, it can be
due too fast reaction or high temperature. In this cases you can try to cool
down the solution.
This method is the fastest and provides more capacity, with 1 bottle of acid
you can make a lot of PCB.
