New Ultra-Clean AFLAS® FFKM Fluoroelastomers Meet High Heat Resistance Demands of Semiconductor Plasma Process Applications

Exton, Pa., September 6, 2023 – AGC Chemicals Americas Inc. has added two new grades to its line of perfluoroelastomers. AFLAS® FFKM PM-5000 and FFKM PM-5500 perfluorinated elastomers are ideal for semiconductor plasma process applications because of their high temperature durability beyond 300 °C and excellent resistance to O2 and NF3 plasma. They also have a high molecular weight that enables greater hardness without using fillers, which can create unwanted particles.

These new nitrile-curable grades build on the high-performance properties of other AFLAS FFKMs. This means they also provide excellent chemical resistance and electrical insulation. These qualities make them suitable for fabricating components that perform in aggressive and sensitive environments.
