SILICIDES

We manufacture ultra high purity PVD silicides critical to microelectronics!

Only about 15% of silicides are refined to the purity needed for electronic applications. While the percentage may seem small, high purity levels play a crucial role for optimal functioning.  Microelectronics require thermal and structural stability, high conductivity and the ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions.
