Perfluoroelastomer suited to plasma deposition applications

Kalrez 9600 is a perfluoroelastomer compound developed to meet the needs of the semiconductor fabricating industry introduced by DowDuPont Transportation and Advanced Polymers, a business segment of DowDuPont Specialty Products Division.

A well-balanced, high-purity perfluoroelastomer product, Kalrez 9600 provides longer seal life by offering enhanced performance properties in an array of aggressive and emerging high-temperature plasma applications.

It has shown excellent ozone, ammonia, fluorine and oxygen radical resistance as well as ultralow outgassing and outstanding thermal stability. Kalrez 9600 is based on a proprietary cross-linking system and is uniquely identifiable by its olive-green colour.

It is especially suited in plasma deposition applications such as atomic layer deposition and chemical vapour deposition, as well as etch processes used to fabricate next-gen chips in the semiconductor industry.

“Kalrez 9600 is an innovative product for the semiconductor fabricating industry and builds on the performance of Kalrez 9100 and Kalrez 9500. It offers longer seal life with better sealing functionality at higher temperatures in vacuum plasma processes,” said Lakshmi Krishnamurthy, ‎Global Market segment leader, Electronics, Energy & Material Handling, DuPont Kalrez and Vespel. “The DuPont Kalrez business is always looking for opportunities to innovate in ways that help our end-users and customers, and we’re pleased to be able to offer a sealing material that helps improve productivity, increase yield and reduce the total cost of ownership in semiconductor fabrication processes.”
