Next-Generation Consumer Electronic Devices Made with Viton™ Fluoroelastomers
Consumer electronic devices, including wearables, come in every shape, size, and color. While designers have great latitude in creating a product, they need special materials to ensure the device has the properties, color brilliance, and durability demanded by customers. With unparalleled versatility and durability, Viton™ fluoroelastomers provide unique benefits to products, enabling you to create differentiation and gain a competitive market advantage.
Viton™ fluoroelastomers help produce articles that can:
- Be made in the exact color of choice and retain that color over time
- Protect the electronics that power the device
- Withstand contact with oils found in skin, sunscreen, hand lotion, and more
- Feel comfortable to wear and have pleasing haptics
Fluoroelastomers in Semiconductor Manufacturing
Elastomers are used in many areas of the semiconductor manufacturing process, including die preparation and wafer processing. Throughout the production process, elastomer products are exposed to highly corrosive etching chemicals that remove layers from the wafer's surface.
Elastomers used in semiconductor manufacturing require the highest levels of purity, safety, and performance. Components made with Viton™ fluoroelastomers have many properties that make them ideal for consumer electronics semiconductor manufacturing, including:
- Chemical resistance
- Thermal resistance
- Chemical stability
- Impervious to corrosive gases
