Kalrez® O-Rings, Seals and Parts - Semiconductor Industry

Choose Kalrez For Aggressive Semiconductor Processing Environments

The success of Kalrez perfluoroelastomer parts have been field-proven in the manufacture of semiconductors, where processing steps can involve extremes of both thermal and chemical exposure. Since purity is critical to high semiconductor wafer yield, reducing contamination from particulates, outgassing and extractables caused by seal deterioration is a major goal of semiconductor fabricators. With Kalrez, manufacturers gain seal integrity and process purity that is backed by more than a quarter century of success.

Chemical resistance that is nearly universal, coupled with superior high-temperature properties, enables Kalrez parts to withstand virtually any process media, including plasma with various gases at temperatures up to 327°C.

By selecting the compound for Kalrez parts that is best suited to a specific application, processors can improve seal performance in all wafer-fabricating operations, including thermal, gas deposition, plasma etching and ashing, and wet chemical systems. All Kalrez parts for semiconductor applications are UltraPure post-cleaned and packaged in a Class 100 clean room for reduced contamination.
