E-Pik 217-L is created for the preparation of copper surfaces for use with EPi's electroplating processes. It does not produce undesirable fumes, so no venting is required when using at room temperature.

E-Pik 217-L is more moderate in its action than mineral acids and peroxide, and produces a defined etch profile and a very consistent surface area.  It leaves a moderately passive surface resistant to rapid re-oxidation allowing for greater time flexibility for subsequent finishing operations. Another benefit is that it does not contain phosphate, chromate, nitrate, fluoride, chloride, or ammonia.
