Solvay and Agru sign long-term supply agreement for use of Solef® PVDF in high-purity semicon water piping systems
Recently, semiconductors have become a hot topic, as multiple production sites are currently under construction and will be operational in the next 3-5 years. The use of pure materials in piping systems (pipe, valve, fittings, and manifold) has become critical in order to maintain the high quality of various semiconductor end applications.
The need for an ultra-pure water supply has led to the use of materials that are highly pure and devoid of any additives. Companies prefer PVDF, one of the high-quality materials. even though the application is for water piping systems. And the same can be observed with the recent collaboration between Solvay (PVDF supplier) and AGRU Kunststofftechnik GmbH (leading piping system supplier for semiconductors).
