Meldin Replacing Vespel in Semicon Applications

Meldin® 7001 Polyimide Replacing Vespel® SP-1 in Semiconductor Applications

Meldin® 7001 polyimide is replacing Vespel® SP-1 in an expanding number of semiconductor applications including Wafer Processing, Handling and IC Testing components. Meldin provides a combination of high-performance properties and superior economical performance.

Meldin® 7001 is ideal for electrical and thermal insulating applications. In Semiconductor Wafer Processing applications, the plasma etch rate of Meldin® 7001 is lower than Vespel® SP-1 providing superior performance over time. In IC Test Sockets & Probe Test Heads, Meldin® 7001 has replaced more expensive Vespel® SP-1 while meeting the same performance standards for precision micro-drilling and long-term stability.

Meldin® 7001 products feature operational temperatures of 500ºF (260ºF) for continuous operation and 900ºF for intermittent exposure, and tight tolerances of ±0.001 in. on both ODs and IDs. Meldin 7001 is suitable for high-temperature structural, high-purity semiconductor components.
