Claiming to be a key differentiator of manufacturing, Taiwan-based GMORS and DV Consulting have launched Applied Seals North America, Inc., which claims to package all of its perfluoroelastomer-based semiconductor equipment chamber seals in a Class 100 cleanroom.

“Sealing products are far from commodity items,” noted Dalia Vernikovsky, President and General Manager of the new Applied Seals North America. “Not only can their composition be tailored for specific applications, but the use of different filler systems, curing processes and even installation methods can dramatically impact the performance and lifetime of elastomeric seals. The new operation in Silicon Valley allows us to provide direct engineering support and resolve any issues much more quickly. With our in-house resources, we’re now able to deliver application solutions, post-sales service and product consignment not only to the semiconductor market, but also to the solar energy, pharmaceutical and biotech industries.”

The perfluoroelastomer seals sold by Applied Seals remain within a Class 100 cleanroom environment throughout production and packaging, while they claim competitors use lower cleanroom classification for production and packaging.
