The performance fluid, also known as electronic engraving fluid, is primarily used in the etching step of the semiconductor process. It is a powerful etchant capable of fine etching of specific materials such as silicon, silicon oxide and other common semiconductor materials. During the photolithography process, e-fluoride can be used to remove photoresist coatings exposed to light to form the desired pattern. In addition, e-fluoride can be used to clean semiconductor wafers to remove surface contaminants.
Performance Fluid: What is it?
Performance fluid is a special, highly effective substance that benefits from the cutting-edge characteristics present in fluorinated compounds.
Performance fluid is the perfect solution for a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace, and electronics, due to its ability to withstand chemical reactions, high temperatures, and degrade very slowly over time.
It is a remarkable fluid option for particular applications because of the distinctive properties inherited by fluorinated compounds. Performance fluid offers an unrivalled level of robustness and protection, it can help keep equipment operating smoothly and efficiently.
What’s in Performance Fluid PF-5060’s composition?
