Solving the solvents dilemma in microelectronics

Could lactate esters be a sustainable panacea for electronics manufacturers?

Diverse solutions

Few sectors are growing and diversifying as much as microelectronics.

So, the pressure is on: when development is so fast, how do you keep advancing specification standards while improving sustainability credentials?

Our PURASOLV® range of biobased solvents, based on lactate esters, could provide the answer.

Effective alternatives to conventional solvents for electronics, lactate esters offer exceptional purity, optimal safety, and high performance, giving you the confidence to leverage their benefits in a wide variety of applications.

Our solutions act as photoresist solvents, thinners, and edge bead removers in semiconductor production, while delivering benefits in other applications like LCD cleaning and capacitors (electronics binders) too.

High purity, high performance microelectronics solvents... that are also green?

For the most advanced applications, turn to PURASOLV® ELECT. A superior-grade ethyl lactate of the highest purity, this solvent has a longstanding track record of optimizing microelectronic manufacturing and performance. Its EHS profile is among the best in the industry – PURASOLV® lactate esters are 100% biobased, readily biodegradable, and environmentally friendly.

But we don't stop there. At Corbion, we are continually looking to improve PURASOLV®'s specifications and efficacy – helping you to stay ahead of evolving industry standards.
