Cupric Chloride:-

Cheap fast and easy to re-generate, either chemically or by electrolytic recovery.  Not suitable for PTH work as it readily attacks tin lead. Normal copper etching reaction is:-


Cu + CuCl2  >> Cu2Cl2


Simple chemical re-generation is possible by adding HCL and enough H2O2 to re oxidize the cuprous chloride to cupric chloride. Excess free peroxide in solution, especially when combined with elevated temperature can result in liberation of toxic fumes.  Given time or less time and air agitation the re oxidization will take place without the addition of the peroxide. 


Ferric Chloride
