We have been using a polymer mask to prevent acid and the
electro-plating process from affecting areas on our pieces we don’t
want affected. The mask is then chemically dissolved leaving the
image we want.
The question is, is anyone aware of a coating material, organic or
inorganic, that will not adhere to the polymer mask thereby causing a
"bridging" problem. The material would actually have to reject, or be
rejected by the polymer mask PRIOR to curing. Curing could be
accomplished through heat, air drying, or cross linking.
I know it’s a tough one, but there is allot of smart people who have
solved tougher problems on this group.
Thanks for the help.
