Fit-Line Global Becomes First to Develop High Purity Semi C90-1015 Compliant PFA Fittings
There are certain moments in an organization’s history that define the company and the path it is on. Monumental moments of accomplishment and innovation. At Fit-Line Global, one of those moments has occurred.
Fit-Line Global is proud to announce that it has become the first high-purity component supplier to become SEMI C90-1015 compliant.
SEMI C90-1015 is the new industry standard for measuring and limiting the amount of Iron contamination in PFA materials used in the semiconductor industry for liquid chemical distribution systems. The company achieved this monumental development through its proprietary manufacturing process, which includes injection molding, a 5-stage cleaning process, and packaging in a Class 1000 Clean Room.
Several PFA fitting samples were tested by Balazs™ NanoAnalysis in accordance with the SEMI C90-1015 specification. All samples passed well below the limits of 5 µg/m².
“At Fit-Line Global, we are committed to meet the future needs of industry leading integrated device manufacturers that require consistency and quality control of all the products for high-volume manufacturing use,” said George Alvarado, vice president and general manager. “Becoming C90 compliant was achieved through a significant capital equipment investment by the company and amazing ingenuity from our team of engineers and process technicians. This is a proud and momentous achievement for Fit-Line Global and the semiconductor industry.”
The new industry standard for measuring the amount of Iron contamination in PFA materials (tube, valves, fittings, resin) used in the semiconductor industry for liquid chemical distribution was first published by the SEMI organization in 2015.
