For the first time in the United States, Conax Technologies exhibited its new EtchDefender™ Technology at SEMICON West. EtchDefender™ is a proprietary coating that extends the life of quartz items exposed to temperatures up to 1200˚C and Hydrochloric etch cleaning cycles. This technology will allow parts to last longer and thereby reduce the frequency of maintenance cycles required to keep tools up and running.

We would like to thank all who stopped by our booth to discuss applications for EtchDefender™ as well as applications for our other temperature measurement and compression seal fittings. We will be following up with those people who discussed applications with us in the days and weeks ahead. For more information about EtchDefender™, click here.
