Abstract

A fluid plating mask having a specific gravity less than that of the electroplating solution is used in a jet plating system. This simplifies the application and associated reclamation processes. A suitable example for the masking fluid is a non-toxic, non-flammable, immiscible (with the plating solution) saturated fluorocarbon liquid.
