Semiconductor production is a necessity in the modern world, powering everything from your computer to your smart speaker to your car. Silicon-based semiconductors are etched onto large wafers. Companies slice these large wafers from ingots grown in Czochralski crucibles, much like ingots for the solar industry.
The semiconductor market relies on the highest purity quartz sand, with the majority of companies insist on quartz sourced from the Spruce Pine region. Ultra high purity quartz sand with minimal impurities ensures that the wafers remain as pure as possible for ideal electrical conductivity.
A fine grain, ultra-high-purity, low-alkali product. Typically contains a maximum of 2.3 ppm of non-SiO2, excluding Al. Ideal for use in quartz ingots.
A standard grain, ultra-high-purity, low-alkali product. Typically contains a maximum of 2.4 ppm of non-SiO2, excluding Al. Ideal for the inner lining of large crucibles.
Datasheets of all our high purity quartz products are available here.
