Where It’s Used: Semiconductor and Electronics Industries

The highly complex manufacturing process required to create integrated circuits or chips presents unique challenges for industrial piping systems, ducting and tank lining. The use of toxic, highly corrosive, flammable gases and liquids can compromise a material’s integrity. Few materials can withstand such a harsh environment without suffering corrosion, process leaks and premature failures. Even fewer piping materials can meet the high purity standards necessary for cleanrooms.

Corzan® Material and Piping Solutions is naturally resistant to corrosion, even when transporting some of the most aggressive chemicals commonly used in the manufacturing of semiconductors. Available in both Schedule 40 and 80, Corzan CPVC reliably handles aggressive chemicals such as:

  • Sulfuric acid
  • Nitric acid
  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Hydrofluoric acid
  • Sodium hydroxide
  • Ammonium hydroxide
