Since 2001 we supply a growing number of research institutes, start-ups and production facilities in the field of micro-structuring with photo resists, ancillaries, solvents, and etchants in semiconductor quality.
Beside our continuously growing product range, it's our utmost concern to assist you with related technical support, short lead times, and suited sales units.
Do you have any technical questions concerning your litho processes, or our products? Please do not hesitate to contact us!

! IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING AZ 9260 !
This week (KW34) we were informed by the manufacturer Merck, whose distributor we are, that due to an ingredient (based on PFOS surfactants) the resists AZ 9260 and AZ 9245 are now no longer available and may no longer be placed on the market, according to which there are no salable stocks remaining.
You can find the official letter from the manufacturer together with an updated MSDS below. However, with the AZ 10 XT there exists a PFOS-free alternative, otherwise - to a large extent - identical to the AZ 9260, which should allow you to continue your previous processes with the same parameters and the same results.
We will gladly send you samples on request.

Thank you for understanding!
Our New Products
Our new Strippers
Photoresist Stripper SVD and SH5
The strippers easily removes layers of photoresists (PR) from inorganic substrates such as silicon, glass and metals (e.g. copper). The smart intelligent fluids® (IF) mode of action is not based on aggressive dissolving processes as in the case of many conventional products. Instead, intelligent fluids® enable a gentle physical detaching even of persistent layers, without damaging the substrate surface.
The strippers works with highly dynamic phase structures in two steps:
● infiltration and fragmentation of the layer
● wrapping and removal of fragments
Negative-tone photoresists will be detached in larger fragments and can be filtered off. Positive-tone photoresists on the other hand will be incorporated
into the fluid.
● pH neutral to the skin (pH: 5.5 – 6.5)
● non-toxic, non-flammable
● dermatologically tested - “excellent”
● readily biodegradable

Our Book Photolithography 2017
The last few months we have been working on a new edition of our brochures. For the first time, we have compiled all themes about photolithography in one softcover book. All contents and information of the previous edition have been revised, updated and renewed.
