High Purity Chemical Manufacturing
To enable the effective manufacturing of electronic devices for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, fabs (integrated circuit manufacturers) are challenged with producing denser and more complex chips with smaller line spacing and 3D features. The digital transformation we are all experiencing as consumers presents new challenges to material makers, as well as opportunities. Contamination control remains one of the largest challenge as integrated circuit (IC) technology advances. Better contamination control can significantly improve yield, and a one percent yield improvement can mean up to $150 million per year in net profit for the fab. As a supplier to these fabs, the opportunities to enable these improvements exist in part within the purity of the materials.
