Entegris, Inc., a developer of yield-enhancing materials and solutions for highly advanced manufacturing environments, announced today the expansion of its liquid filtration/purification analytical science and research and development facility in Suwon, South Korea. As an addition to its existing Korea Technology Center (KTC) facility, the expanded lab includes advanced chemical/water analysis and material characterization capabilities, along with filtration device instrumentation. These new capabilities will allow closer collaboration with local customers to solve specific liquid filtration challenges by providing optimized solutions for their advanced processes.
“Sophisticated analysis of the interaction and compatibility between complex process chemistries and filtration devices are increasingly important as technology nodes advance. We continue to invest in these technologies ̶ close to our customers ̶ to optimize the performance of our filters with the unique chemical solutions our customers require,” said Entegris Vice President of Liquid Microcontamination Control, Clint Haris. “Expanding the KTC liquid filter lab allows us to increase collaboration with Korean customers and to integrate new developments into new process solutions faster.”
The expansion represents Entegris’ on-going commitment to serving the Korean semiconductor manufacturing market and its continued effort to work directly with customers on a local level to solve critical issues for advanced technology processes. Entegris is the leading provider of liquid filtration and purification technologies for the most advanced semiconductor applications.
In addition to the expanded analytical and R&D liquid filtration services, Entegris’ KTC also provides wet and dry chemistry development, chemistry formulation and pilot scale-up, on-site metrology with real-time reporting, and microcontamination and liquid filter characterization.
