Kinsten Printed Circuit Board

Make your own PCB, quickly and easily.

More than 25 years of proven performance.

Kinsten PCB prototyping is renowned for high quality printed circuit boards and ease of use. The photo-resist is machine applied producing an even coating to enable consistent results.

Many schools, universities, electronic developers and hobbyists use Kinsten, to get repeatable, excellent results.

Kinsten photo-resist is known for its wide tolerance of processes users like to employ. It is recommended to use Kinsten UV exposure boxes & etch tanks with Kinsten PCB.

Shipping Methods

Freight Considerations 2020

There have been significant changes to freight transport.

Notably, most services reject chemicals (DP50 developer & EB750 etchant) as general cargo or for post. They have to be sent as Dangerous Goods. We don't offer this service.

While the situation is improving, some orders experience longer than quoted delivery times. This is outside of our control.

Taiwan EMS & International Parcel Post service have limited destinations at this time, and the accepted countries vary according to post office discretion at the time of despatch.

DPEX Courier

We currently find this to be the most economical with availablity to most regions and recommend this service. DPEX delivery time is typically 3-10 days from despatch. Tracking is available for all DPEX deliveries.

EMS Courier

Where available, EMS delivery is generally 3 to 7 days from despatch, but some countries will take longer due to incoming customs delays. Tracking is available for all EMS deliveries.

International Parcel Post

Parcel post can be used when delivery time is not critical, at a lower cost.

Air Post delivery time can vary from 7 days to 45 days from despatch, but is typically delivered within 30 days.

SAL (Surface Air-lifted) Post delivery time is typically 20-45 days from despatch, but is only available to limited destinations.

Surface Post is usually the lowest cost, but not available to all destinations. Typical delivery times are 45 to 120 days from despatch.

Other Courier Services (DHL, Fedex, UPS etc.)

If you require this service, you must specify your own account accepting all freight charges ex shipping depot.

Air & Sea Freight

We can offer FOB (Free on Board) for orders shipped from Taiwan with a value greater than USD7,000. If the order value is less, there will be an additional charges to cover documentation and internal freight cost.

Country & Region Options

Please ensure you select the correct shipping region and country when options are available. Incorrect selection may delay or cancel the order.

There are some countries we cannot accept orders from, due to commercial restrictions.
