The electronics industry is dependent upon precisely controlled chemistry for the fabrication of semiconductor devices, with processes that require ultrapure water, acid-based etching, and cleaning with harsh chemicals at elevated temperatures. Its robust heat exchangers are used in the production of world-class electronic chemicals, in the cooling of etchants inside tools, and cooling spent chemicals as they are drained from process equipment. Millions of feet of its high-purity tubing are used in chemical supply systems in wafer fabs around the world.

As circuitry gets smaller and smaller, fabs require higher and higher levels of purity. Improper materials present in wet processing equipment components release leachates, ions and contamination, compromising semiconductor device quality. AMETEK’s products, made of the highest purity fluoropolymer, will not interact with process fluids and allow semiconductor fabs to achieve the extreme quality critical to their businesses.
