Industry Spotlight: Electronics & Semiconductor

Many organizations in the electronics and semiconductor industry require thermal spray coatings to help overcome various manufacturing challenges on a regular basis. As our clients in the semiconductor industry know, thermal spray coatings can offer a wide range of advantages such as increased durability, high bonding strength, power retention, as well as meeting their strictest industry requirements. In addition, electronics are usually subjected to constant handling and must be well-coated to prevent damage that can be caused by abrasion.

Common Electronics & Semiconductor Thermal Spray Coating Materials

A&A Coatings utilize a good range of coating materials, each of which delivers unique advantages and characteristics, for coating electronics and other semiconductor components. These materials include:

  • Polymers
  • Tantalum
  • Oxide ceramics
  • Titanium
  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Moly-disilicide
  • Iron-chrome-aluminum
  • Zinc
  • Pure silicon

Why do Ceramic Materials Hold Great Significance in the Electronics & Semiconductor Industry Today?

In the electronics and semiconductor industry, ceramic materials are needed when dimensional stability is required over a range of temperatures – mostly for harsh processing environments. Other reasons pinpoint to their versatility, which allows them to be adjusted to meet various resistivity requirements.

These materials also possess such a broad range of attributes that modern semiconductor processing cannot be accomplished without them. If semiconductor applications require a material that contains low levels of trace metals, has strong dielectric properties and is high in purity, ceramics are the best materials and can form either the interior process surfaces or process chamber material for ion implanting, plasma etching and more.
