ENGINEERING YOUR SUCCESS IN SEMICONDUCTORS
Specialty thermoplastics play a vital role in the semiconductor industry, where conductivity, shielding, insulating, chemical resistance, heat resistance and dimensional stability are paramount. Americhem understands the complexities involved in the manufacturing and handling of semiconductors and the costly effects of electrostatic discharge (ESD). As an independent compounder, we capitalize on our extensive supplier relationships to select high-performance resins for electronics. These resins are blended with carefully selected additives, fillers and fibers to produce a wide range of conductivity levels, enhance polymer characteristics and impart desired properties.
Our low outgassing materials are dimensionally stable at high and low temperatures and provide clean, contaminant-free surfaces for ultra-high purity processing. They resist harsh chemicals, acids and solvents, and can be engineered to meet UL flammability and safety standards, and achieve RoHS / REACH compliance. Lot-to-lot consistency is ensured for precision processing through standardized equipment and testing methods.
Leverage Americhem’s extensive R&D and process engineering capabilities to mold your ideas into reality and address critical performance requirements for:
- Chemical mechanical planarization (CMP)
- Etching and cleaning
PRECOLORING SOLUTIONS THAT SIMPLIFY YOUR COLORING CHALLENGES
As leaders in color technology, we will work with your design team to help elevate your brand with over 60 precolored resin formulations to choose from in our ColorFast™ series. ColorFast™ provides an easy way to achieve standard industry color coding for products like display modules, bezels, connectors and more.

EXPLORE THE BRANDS THAT DELIVER THE GREATEST IMPACT FOR ELECTRONICS MANUFACTURING
Whether you need to eliminate static charge build-up, provide shielding from EMI/RFI interference, increase material strength, integrate soft-touch features or color code your product, Americhem has dedicated brand lines to maximize a polymer’s potential.
INELEC™ ELECTRICALLY ACTIVE COMPOUNDS
Electrostatic build-up can wreak havoc on electronic housings and components, causing safety concerns, premature wear, and damage to products and equipment. Americhem’s InElec™ compounds control that risk by imparting conductive technologies such as carbon fibers and powders for electronics to achieve specific electrical properties. Common applications for InElec™ include ESD control, EMI shielding and component/system grounding.
INSTRUC™ STRUCTURALLY REINFORCED COMPOUNDS
Whether you are working with high temperatures, high loads or just need a wear-resistant plastic to boost the durability of your products, InStruc™ helps achieve the exact performance and properties required by combining glass, carbon and mineral reinforcements. Customers specify InStruc™ as a replacement for metal to meet weight reduction targets and consolidate parts that can be formed without assembly.
INTHERM™ THERMALLY CONDUCTIVE COMPOUNDS
Thermal conductivity is a primary concern for electronic device makers that need reliable solutions to manage heat buildup and hot spots. Americhem’s InTherm™ product line achieves thermal conductivity up to 100 times that of unmodified resins depending on the proprietary filler technology applied. Customers turn to InTherm™ to extend product life and increase product performance.
SEVRENE® THERMOPLASTIC ELASTOMERS
Does your product design call for a soft touch grip or ergonomic design? Sevrene® is an all-thermoplastic tri-block compound that exhibits rubber-like characteristics. With Sevrene®, you can bring textures alive and create a unique surface feel that your customers would expect in a high-quality product with built-in resistance to heat, ozone and UV light.
