Genral Information

AZ® PC 520 D is a cost-effective coating for the protection of device surfaces during operations such as back-lap or backside etch.It is based on Novolak resin, has a blue colour for easy inspection and is resistant to most etchants. The thickness of this coating is 2.0 µm at 4000 rpm spin speed.

Please note, that the protective coating AZ 520D is not stable in KOH-etches typically used for silicon etching.

In the datasheet there is a reference to a product AZ 546D this product was dicontinued in 2005 and is therefore no longer available.
