Project description

Semiconductor Industry

Global Foundries, former known as AMD, a German based company is one of the leading companies in the semicondustor industry. This company holds three large manufacturing sites in Germany, the USA and Singapore. The sites are considered to be one of the most successful leading-edge semiconductor production facilities of the world.

Ultra pure chemicals are to be handled and stored in these chemical plants. So chemical resistant equipment is needed to be implemented in the process of these plants. This is where Plasticon Composites was responsible to do the design, engineering and supply of dual laminate process vessels. The fluorplastic inner liner made of PFA, a fluroropolymer, was chosen to be applied as a highly chemical resistant inner layer.

The UPC tanks are produced under special circumstances in our plant in Germany to guarantee an ultra clean product.
