Proven record of success for Semicon applications
Victrex helps shape the future performance of semiconductor technologies by offering increased productivity, reliability and reduced risks by lower particle generation and outgassing.
50% longer lifetime than PPS
CMP rings made with VICTREX PEEK can provide less downtime, more throughput with up to 3% productivity increase through 2X wear resistance vs. PPS.
Endures fabrication processes with up to 260°C (500°F) and harsh chemicals, which enables a faster processes by reducing wafer cooling time that may improve fab productivity.
Potential yield enhancement
Low particle generation and high purity resulting in low outgassing and extractables which may lead to yield improvement in fabs.
Applying VICTREX PEEK in key Semicon applications can help reliable fab operation over time.
Push the boundaries at fabs for better reliability and productivity
High wear resistance allows CMP retainer rings made from VICTREX PEEK to run up to two times longer than PPS before replacing, leading to less downtime and more throughput.
The properties of VICTREX PEEK polymers including wear and chemical resistance, dimensional stability, ESD, and low outgassing can help prevent particle contamination and achieve more reliable wafer handling, storage, and transfer.
VICTREX PEEK gives reticles the opportunity to be stored in an environment with low outgassing and low ionic contamination.
MATERIAL SOLUTIONS FOR Fabs
The semiconductor industry is moving toward high volume production and shorter time to market. VICTREX PEEK has a proven performance in key semicon applications from CMP retainer rings, RSPs, EUV pods, FOUPs, wafer carriers, test sockets, and more.
Explore the APTIV Film advantage
APTIV Films with all the benefits of VICTREX PEEK Polymer in a thin-film format can be applied in key applications for Semicon and display manufacturing such as wafer carriers and transport tapes.
Demands for higher structural integrity, reliability, mobility, and connectivity are all shaping the way electronic components are designed. More OEMs and brands are specifying Victrex polymer solutions including APTIV films to reach new levels of performance and enhance user experience.
Replacing key metal components such as impellers in home appliances with high-performing VICTREX PAEK solutions can help achieve improvement in cost-saving, energy efficiency, and compact design while not compromising reliable performance – even for rotation at speeds in excess of 100,000 rpm.
From the invention of PEEK over 40 years ago, Victrex has continually pioneered new PAEK-based polymers, materials and solutions that have transformed markets, delivering global impact in the toughest environments.
We bring transformational solutions that address world material challenges every day.
