'[OT] building PCB with photo sensitive boards (thr'

has anyone used this product known as Press-n-Peel? see http://www.techniks.com/

there is also a UK agent handling it. It sounds very similar to the processes
being discussed in this thread recently, but I am not sure if it is the product
I saw reviewed in a magazine.

I've used press and peel, it is sold by Maplin in the UK.

I must admit, I didn't find it very convenient to use, although the idea
seems great. On average it took me at least 5 board revisions to get a
decent one.

The critical stage is the ironing. Too hot an iron, and the tracks 'blob'
outwards. Too cold, and you end up with missing patches. To make things
worse, the PCBs I had all had a very subtle bow to them which meant ironing
as a flat surface was very difficult.

When I did get a good result, I got a very good result.

However I got fed up of the low yield, and have now ordered a UV light box,
and photo sensitive PCBs.

What I would say is give it a go, if you crack the ironing technique, it
will do the job nicely. I just couldn't crack it.

Good luck,

Andy
