Using a proprietary process and advanced surface finish, AKT Components is the early and leading provider of PET material, which provides lots of improvements in CMP ring applications:
PET provides a significant material life advantage on Ox and W CMP processes. The wear rates are lower compared to standard retaining rings (PPS, PEEK, etc.) leading to up to 3x longer lifetimes. That saves money.
AKT’s retaining rings deliver equivalent wafer profiles and removal rates, so there is very little change involved in using these rings. That means fast qualifications.
All shipments are clean room packaged to ensure quality. Video quality checks are performed on 100% of the retaining rings.
