Acid etching is a acid but the covering the acid in the glass. Mostly people get it because it's cheap and it last for a long time. They also use it because it's very good for single PCB. They use it for single PCB because acid etching is safe and if they use it in a good way is very helpful to the person, but they have to have there safety equipment so it well make it safe. Also acid etching gives a smooth finish to the PCB. The acid etching also has disadvantages which are it takes long time to dry. It also has a hazard which is corrosion and it well affect to your skin if you touch it or if it goes on your tissue. Also if you breathe it in it could affect your breathing and it could go to your nose and in to your body. Acid etching also has high toxic fumes which are harmful to your body. In my conclusion I thing it's a good thing to use because it's cheap but it may take time and it's very easy way to use it and I thing it's very safe for a person to use it, only if they have their safety equipment. Also its very good thing for clear etching and it makes it easy for the person who is using it because it makes it clear to see. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.
