Greene, Tweed offers precision plastic components for a variety of demanding, semiconductor applications. These components are made from a full range of high-performance thermoplastic materials, including our Xycomp® composite materials. Xycomp is ideally suited to replace metal or ceramic compounds due to its high strength, low weight, corrosion resistance and dimensional stability. Xycomp materials may also be used in high-pressure and high-temperature (up to 250°C/482°F) applications.
The optimal Xycomp material for a specific application is deter-mined by the unique combination of plastic material, fibers and fiber orientation, as well as manufacturing techniques. Greene, Tweed provides the necessary application evaluation services to assist in choosing the best performance characteristics.
Greene, Tweed offers a complete line of high-performance, application-specific seals and plastic components. Many Greene, Tweed products result from cooperative efforts between Greene, Tweed and leading semiconductor equipment manufacturers and forward-looking fabs. Our dedicated team of chemists, chemical and mechanical engineers, customer service specialists and production technicians are ready to assist you in solving your processing challenges.
