FC Gold First Contact Polymer Solution
Our FC Gold Polymer was developed and engineered to exhibit very low adhesion on gold substrates. Gold coatings inherently exhibit very low adhesion unless the substrate is properly cleaned and plasma etched, and an adhesion layer such as chromium is applied between the substrate and gold. While our Red First Contact Polymer formula has been shown to be safe on gold coated substrates through extensive
testing by LIGO as reported in this document, FC Gold exhibits even less adhesion than our Red formula and will give the best opportunity for success if the coating integrity is suspect or unknown. FC Gold First Contact is a new and unique designer polymer blend and solvent formulation, has passed all test criteria, and provides the excellent contamination control and removal the world has come to expect from First Contact™ Polymer products. Like our other formulations, hundreds of hours went into developing and testing FC Gold Formula to ensure it meets our, and our customer’s, strict quality control requirements.
