Semiconductors are the brains of electronics, providing user input, wireless connectivity, processing, storage, power management, and other essential functions to a wide range of essential products, life-saving equipment and critical infrastructure. 

Semiconductors also underpin IT systems, enabling advances in countless applications including healthcare and medical devices, telecommunications, energy, finance, transportation, agriculture, manufacturing, aerospace and defense. 

At Fluorocarbon, we supply critical components used in sophisticated chip-processing equipment to Semicon OEM’s across the world.

Offering a wide range of high-performance engineering plastics, we also provide engineered and moulded parts from materials including PCTFE, PEEK and PTFE

The dimensions and tolerances we offer are adapted to meet the demanding requirements of the semiconductor industry, using both moulding and stress relieving processes. We offer advice on material selection to meet specific applications, including formulation and in-house blending of material compounds in a clean controlled environment. 

We provide testing for materials and finished products to a wide range of European, US and International standards.
