High UV-C reflective solder mask
Thanks to a unique paste formulation and CERcuits’ unique circuit mask application process, we can offer a new UV reflective mask solution on ceramic printed circuits and submounts that reflects >80% in the UVC spectrum.
As UV-C LEDs still suffer from significant side emissions and given that typical epoxy-based circuit board solder masks have a too low reflectance, many UV-C modules are still underperforming and suffer from rapid degradation.
Our proprietary mask solution makes it possible sustain long and stable performances over a high load, even when using chip-on-board designs. In combination with the ceramic substrate, the modules can also be managed better thermally while being inert for environmental hazards. The combination finally enables efficient UV-C engines that meet today’s demand from curing, disinfection and other applications.
Our mask can be supplied with solderable and wire bondable finishes for both top contact, flip chip, SMT and through hole designs. (Immersion tin or silver, ENIG, ENEPIG, EPIG, DIG, …)
Typical applications include
– Ink and paint curing
– Air, water and surface disinfection
– Odor control
– Outdoor sensors
– Space applications
