I'm planning a KOH or TMAH etch through a Si substrate, and I'm wondering
about potential frontside masking materials. Has anyone used BCB or black
wax to protect the front side during a long etch? If so, how do you address
the BCB edges and possible delamination?  Does anyone have other suggestions
for a good protective layer?

Thanks in advance for your help,
