Slurries in a lab

Intersurface Dynamics

PR Hoffman is proud to partner with Intersurface Dynamics.   IDI provides slurries that work with our machines and carriers for the best outcome for our customers.

Since 1985, Intersurface Dynamics has manufactured application-specific chemicals for specific surface morphologies on a variety of materials. PR Hoffman is proud to work with a company with such expertise. Our shared customers include some of the world’s largest manufacturers of semiconductor devices, silicon wafers, precision optics, advanced displays, and flat glass. These manufacturers rely on IDI’s and PR Hoffman’s expertise to optimize critical high-volume manufacturing.

Intersurface Dynamics offers three different product lines addressing the needs of each specific industry. Tensor Series Products are used by manufacturers of integrated circuits in applications such as cleaning, etching, dicing and CMP. Vector Series Products were designed for grinding, sawing, lapping, cleaning, etching and polishing semiconductor materials such as silicon wafers. Challenge Series Products address similar processes for manufacturers of precision optics, technical ceramics, and advanced displays.

Input from field engineering provides IDI chemists with the impetus for product design, while continuous basic research in the areas of chemistry, physics, and material science is the catalyst for product innovation. IDI’s constant innovation allows PR Hoffman to be responsive to the needs and challenges of our customers.

Once a formulation is designed in the lab, Intersurface Dynamics performs application testing in the process simulation laboratory. There, new products are tested to simulate a customer’s manufacturing environment. Afterwards, using advanced metrology equipment, the results from the tests are compiled. Review of the compiled data determines if the product is ready for commercialization. All of IDI’s slurries meet PR Hoffman’s highest standards and are paired with the appropriate carriers and machines, ensuring customer satisfaction.
