Semitron® MPR100 Sheet and Bar

Semitron® MPR1000 for the Semiconductor Industry

 
Semitron® MPR1000 is a new engineering material developed by Mitsuibishi Chemical Advanced Materials for semiconductor applications. MPR stands for maximum plasma resistance. It is intended for use in vacuum plasma chambers to replace ceramics and quartz for ICU production.  Ceramics are more expensive and quartz is prone to break. It also performs better in this application than PEEK, PAI such as Torlon® or polyimide thermoplastics.  For example MRP1000 has an increased life in plasma chambers of up to 25X in ozone than polyimides such as Vespel®.…
