The Acid Bench 80 is a wet bench used for working with acids, mostly for etching and cleaning of samples that have had metals and/or polymers on them. It is considered a Metals class tool, so wafers with metal are allowed in the bench with some restrictions. It is intended for use with mixed materials and all substrate sizes up to 6 inches with the main focus being on piece parts.
