thermoplastic compounds for electronics


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
  • Packaging
  • Testing


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.

Americhem can precolor a wide range of materials to meet the specific requirements of your application. Some examples include:

  • Elastomers for soft-touch applications
  • Flame-retardant materials to meet UL, CSA and IEC requirements
  • Translucent and transparent materials
  •  ESD and shielding materials
  • Wear and friction materials
  • High-temperature materials
  • Customer-specified trade name resins
