Advanced Circuits Reviews Tin Market Outlook Reception

Advanced Circuits Reviews Tin Market Outlook Reception

At a recent reception sponsored by ITRI China in Beijing last week, a group of over 30 people that included tin producers, traders and consumers were polled about the outlook of the industry for the coming year. The results of the poll indicate that most expect a gradual improvement in market conditions. Chinese companies have large inventories due to the high amount of imports and low local demand. It is expected that prices will bottom in the first quarter and recover by year-end next year. You can learn more about how this affects printed circuit board manufacturing by talking with the experts at Advanced Circuits.

The Role of Tin in the Advanced Circuits PCB Process

Tin is used in the plating process of PCBs as a resist for etching away the underlying copper that is unneeded. It helps keep the board from erosion so that it will hold up for your application. To start the process of creating your printed circuit boards, work with the team at Advanced Circuits.
