CoorsTek Introduces PlasmaPure-UC(TM) Ultra-Pure Alumina
New ultra-pure version of PlasmaPure(TM) Alumina offers extreme purity (99.9%) critical for semiconductor, electronic, and optical industries
SAN FRANCISCO, July 15 -- Semicon West 2008 -- Today, CoorsTek officially released its newest ultra-high-purity ceramic material designed specifically for extreme-duty semiconductor applications.
In addition to the material's exceptionally high purity, PlasmaPure-UC alumina offers high etch resistance in corrosive chemistries, very low sodium content, and an extremely low dielectric loss tangent of <0.00002. The fine-grained material also boasts four times better corrosion resistance and six times lower sodium content than competitive alumina materials.
"Outstanding material property data and very positive customer trials have proven the material quite effective at extending component life and greatly reducing contamination," said Mark Petty, Executive Vice President of CoorsTek, Inc. "This material is an excellent example of the advanced capabilities offered by our Specialty Materials Center, announced last year," he continued.
