Hi guys.

Well, I have this great idea of how to keep the ink printed circuits from the printer for a long long time if not for a life time.
The idea started when I cut one of the clear paper and the ink just remove by me by mistake, so I thought why the hell not to laminate the clear paper?
I was afraid that the laminate machine will burn the whole deal, so I made a test.

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

It's perfect!
Didn't burn at all and the ink is whole, no gaps, nothing.
Today I'll laminate all the circuits I have and keep them without warrying that nothing will happend to them.

PS I try it only with laser print, not with regular ink printer.
If someone can check this with ink printer that would be great.

Cheers,
Isak E.

I'm not entirely sure if that is such a good idea, maybe it works (and then it's a great way to protect them) but you now introduce an extra layer
between the print and the PCB where light can get through.

Hi PHobos.

I already eatched it, works like a charm.
I use a pic frame with glass, the light is in the center excactly above the print so there is no problems Smile

I always use a laser printer on clear acetate... But I find the toner isn't put down thick enough, so I have to print it twice and "double up" to get the tracks dark enough for exposure Rolling Eyes

I'm going to try a few experiments with ink jet based tracing paper to see if that helps... or get a better laser printer Wink

Hi Andy.

i use HP LaserJet CP2025.
very deep colors, no need to print twice, cheap and great laser printer.
what i did with the lamination is cause after a while the ink is coming down, this is why.

anyway check the printer, its a good one. Very Happy
