Acetone

CH3COCH3

Available Purity Grades of Acetone

We supply acetone in VLSI und ULSI-quality, which are usual purity grades applied in semiconductor processing and micro-electronics. The specifications of both qualities are listed in the technical data sheet below.

Typical Fields of Application of Acetone

Acetone removes organic impurities from substrates and is well suited for greasy/oily contaminations. Its high evaporation rate, however, requires a subsequent cleaning step in e. g. isopropyl alcohol in order to avoid striations on the substrate. Acetone is not well-suited as lift-off medium due to the high fire danger when heated and the trend of particles to be lifted to resorb onto the substrate.
