Corzan 4910 CPVC was developed to meet the need in the semiconductor industry for fire-safe materials. Damage to chip fabrication facilities is caused by fires and the smoke created is extremely costly. The movement toward fire-safe materials is an effort to reduce the likelihood of fires and to minimize the damage caused by them.
Corzan 4910 CPVC is currently being tested at SEMATECH alongside other materials of construction of cleanroom equipment to determine the chemical resistance, outgassing and leachability to determine the suitability for cleanroom applications. The results will be published in the near future by SEMATECH.
