ELPESPEC® Auxiliary Products

ELPESPEC® Auxiliary Products can be used universally in the processing of any kind of coating material: They simplify and facilitate the application of circuit printing inks, conformal coatings and casting compounds in electronics manufacturing.

For circuit printing we offer universal products such as thinners and retarders, screen openers and antistatic sprays for screen printing, besides specific auxiliaries for processing photoimageable coating materials such as Stouffer grey step wedges, defoamants or special strippers.
