Semiconductor - Wafer Manufacturing

Semiconductor - Wafer Manufacturing

Wafer processing is a term used to describe the process of creating chips, or integrated circuits, that are present in everyday electrical and electronic devices. High quality thermoplastics play an integral role in this process due to their unique characteristics. Because of its outstanding combination of physical properties, PEEK (polyether ether ketone) has been a material of choice for semiconductor wafer processing applications including structural parts in electronics and telecom equipment and integrated circuit (IC) test sockets. PEEK exhibits low moisture absorption and high chemical-, wear-, and thermal-resistance properties. PEEK also displays good management of static electricity.

The Semitron® line of semiconductor grade products maintains the same superior qualities of PEEK while providing increased strength, dimensional stability, and machinability. Semitron® outperforms other materials in its longevity and value compared to other engineering materials.

Piedmont Plastics stocks a variety of PEEK and Semitron® products engineered to optimize the precision performance of device manufacturing equipment. Our knowledgeable representatives will guide you in selecting the best materials for your semiconductor industry needs.
