CoorsTek Expands Materials Base to Include Fused Quartz
October 16, 2001
CoorsTek Inc., Golden, Colo., entered into a fabricator agreement with a U.S.-based market leader in fused quartz materials. CoorsTek will fabricate, assemble, sell and distribute various varieties of quartz, including opaque, low alkali, low hydroxyl, and other quartz materials for use in semiconductor processing chamber components. These materials are suitable for demanding environment applications due to their increased performance in high temperature operations, ultra-high purity applications and specific wavelength transmission. CoorsTek plans to integrate the quartz operations in its Oak Ridge, Tennessee facility, where the quartz will be precision machined into various semiconductor processing chamber components.
