1. Green solder mask

The green color is the most used as a solder mask in the printed circuit boards. The color of such printed circuit boards is usually bod green and is having a white silkscreen.

3. Solder Mask ColorBlue solder mask

The dark blue color is being used in numerous professional printed circuit boards, gaining immense demand. The contrast between the planes, trances, and empty spaces is fantastic. The best thing about having the blue color printed circuit board is its contrast between the silkscreen and solder mask if there is heavy labeling in the printed circuit board.
