Etching is traditionally the process in which undesired parts of a component are dissolved in chemicals such as acids, bases or others, for yielding desired shapes. During that process the desired part is protected by masking it with a removable material, for example polymer or rubber, which is inert or resistant to the chemicals used for etching and also gets easily adhered to the desired part.
Etching chemicals are used to produce high precision of metals parts in any desired shape and might be available in different strengths to facilitate the speed of the process. In addition, other chemicals might be used to protect the surface plate from the acids.
