Apex Industries Selects Vycom Flametec® Cleanroom PVC-C to Fit Stringent Needs of Clients Serving Semiconductor Industry



SCRANTON, Pa., Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Apex Industries, a precision machining and fabrication company in Tigard, Oregon, has chosen Flametec® Cleanroom PVC-C for the machine parts and weldment it supplies to ClassOne Technology for use in its flagship product, the Solstice® technology platform. Solstice is used for the wet-chemical processing of semiconductor substrates.

ClassOne's Solstice(R) wet-chemical processing system relies on Apex Industries' housing/components made with Vycom's Flametec (R) Cleanroom PVC-C. ANSI FM-4910 compliant, "the material is chemical and moisture-resistant, machinable, easy to fabricate and stands up to punishing environments,

Flametec Cleanroom PVC-C, is ANSI FM-4910 compliant, a designation given to a material that passes the Factory Mutual test for fire propagation and smoke damage.  It also meets UL-94 5VA and is RoHS and REACH compliant.

"Apex uses Flametec Cleanroom PVC-C because it meets fire-safe compliance standards, is chemical and moisture-resistant, machinable, easy to fabricate and stands up to punishing environments," says Jason Shostrand, sales and business development manager, Apex. "This allows us to design and manufacture solutions that serve a multitude of semiconductor wet process tools used for cleaning, etching, plating and chemical and fluid distribution applications."

Apex specializes in the design and manufacturing of custom products where purity and chemical resistance are critically important.  Flametec Cleanroom PVC-C is used to build many facets of the ClassOne Technology's Solstice plating systems, but most notably, the housing.

Shostrand says, "Just as important as the design and manufacturing of these wet processing systems are the PVC materials that go into them?with their own set of performance properties that improve the end result and provide processing benefits to the OEM or chip fabricator."

"Materials are of critical importance to ClassOne and its customers in the semiconductor industry," agrees Kevin Witt, president of ClassOne. "As our flagship product, the Solstice is sold to deliver precision results across a range of demanding technologies. This means that each component and sub-assembly is scrutinized in terms of performance and cost to ensure that it is compatible and capable of getting the job done."

"There are many factors that influence the choice of material for these demanding conditions," said Witt.  "Safety is the number one concern ? so process equipment like the Solstice must be designed properly and be made of the right materials."  Learn more about Vycom's PVC and Olefin products on its website at www.vycomplastics.com.
