Semicon and Solar
Saint-Gobain Quartz is offering a large portfolio of products that answer the specific need whenever silicon based products are being processed. Quartzel® is for decades being used in thermal insulation thanks to its high purity. SilPower® is increasingly being used for its near infra-red reflection, homogeneous heating and energy savings. Finally quartz crucibles play a key role in both Solar and Semicon silicon ingot pulling.
Quartzel in Solar and Semicon
Saint-Gobain Quartz is the worldwide leader of Quartzel fused quartz fiber, with more than 50 years of experience and innovation. Its extreme purity a high as 99.95% SiO2 associated with high thermal resistance make Quartzel the material of choice insulation.
Our products can be found in the following application
- Furnace insulation
- Process tube insulation
- Polysilicon production
SilPower in Solar and Semicon
Our machinable ultra-pure ceramic SilPower is made from Quartzel fused quartz fiber . Its near infra-red performance is even higher than gold and remains stable over the time. Moreover its diffuse reflection allow an homogeneous and repeatable heating that ensure a higher yield and better quality than alternative material or classical solutions during wafer processing.
Crucibles in Solar and Semicon
Saint-Gobain Quartz offers crucibles for monocrystalline ingot pulling using Czochralski process. Products can be offered with or without inner protective coating.
