DMSO EL 10 Grade Product Sheet

Ideal for the Electronic Industry


DMSO Electronic Grade is Dimethyl Sulfoxide with extremely low metallic ion levels. Elimination of metallic impurities is critical in avoidance of conductivity and corrosion in the electronic industry. Residual levels of eleven metals are analyzed our analysis includes confirmation of ion content in Parts per Billion (ppb) by ICP-OES ( Inductively Coupled Plasma-Optical Emission Spectroscopy). DMSO Electronic Grade is produced and packaged under exacting conditions to insure purity.

Wafer Microscope for the surface inspection of wafers in nanometre range.

Choose DMSO Electronic Grade for:

TFT-LCL Manufacturing
In the photolithographic process used to pattern thin film transistors, DMSO is combined with ethanolamine and used as a powerful remover of bulk photoresist. Pure DMSO is also used in many Fab shops as a rinse solvent, a thinner (for edge cleaning), and in the rework of color filters. The only DMSO manufactured under cGMP conditions conforming to API guidelines Manufactured in dedicated, stainless steel equipment utilizing patented technology to ensure the highest purity Supported by a Type II Drug Master File (DMF) on file with the FDA and Health Canada.

 

Semiconductor devices
DMSO is used as a major component in bulk photoresist stripping formulations, and as an additive in specialized post- etch cleaning products and edge bead removers.

 

Solder Bump Patterning
As an alternative to wire bonding, a final wafer processing step produces solder bumps on the surface of a chip pad. DMSO is a useful component of stripping formulations needed to remove the photoresist which patterns the solder bumps in Flip Chip packaging technology.
