May offer a less-costly and less equipment-intensive alternative to photoresist for creating conductive lines for displays and circuit boards, in both cases leading to potentially less-expensive production suitable for shorter runs.
Other technologies achieve only larger pore sizes, or their pore sizes are not as consistently controllable. Source materials and equipment to manufacture the DuPont filters are common and inexpensive.
Cherry pickers may not be able to reach all parts of the structure. Workers have been known to create makeshift working platforms from plywood, planks, and ladders, but all these approaches present hazards.
