AmberCut™ LVE 44R is a water diluteable, synthetic lapping vehicle specifically formulated for the free abrasive lapping of computer disk read/write heads. It provides excellent removal rates, imparts improved surface finishes and enhances plate life. AmberCut™ LVE 44R has the unique ability to replenish the lapping plate with fresh diamond, allowing cut rates and surface finishes to remain consistent for extended periods of time.
AmberCut™ WS-236T is a ready to use, synthetic, wire slice vehicle specifically formulated for the free abrasive cutting of silicon carbide, sapphire or other crystalline materials. It provides excellent cut rates and imparts outstanding surface finishes with reduced warp and TTV. AmberCut™ WS-236T offers superior abrasive suspension at loading rates up to 60%. Slurries blended with this vehicle have low dynamic viscosities and smooth flow properties. Additionally, AmberCut™ WS-236T slurries exhibit extended use life allowing the slicing of multiple ingots while maintaining performance properties. This unique formula is biodegradable, water rinseable and will not leave films or residues.
AmberCut™ WS-P2D is a ready to use, synthetic, wire slice vehicle specifically designed for the free abrasive cutting of silicon or ceramic materials. It provides superior cut rates and imparts good surface finishes with reduced warp and TTV. Slurries blended with AmberCut™ WS-P2D have low dynamic viscosities, smooth flow properties, are water rinseable and will not leave films or residues. Additionally, AmberCut WS-P2D is biodegradable, non-hazardous and non-toxic, making it an environmentally sound alternative to oil based vehicles.
AmberGuard™ PH7-C is a specifically formulated pH stabilizer designed to provide a neutral pH (7.0) environment in low-ionic or non-ionic aqueous solutions. This unique additive provides protection against the oxidation and corrosion of reactive metals such as cobalt, manganese, copper, nickel and iron, which are often used in the manufacture of advanced magnetic heads. AmberGuard™ PH7-C is effective at preventing fluid acidification due to CO2 absorption. It also contains a preservative to control bio-contamination.
AmberLap™ S600 is a water dispersible, abrasive suspension agent designed for use in the free abrasive lapping of silicon wafers and other ceramic substrates. When used with an AmberCut™ slurry vehicle, it imparts excellent abrasive suspension for extended periods of time. Slurries that utilize AmberLap™ S600 exhibit low viscosities and superior shear stability which allows slurry reuse without the loss of abrasive suspension. Such slurries have shown the ability to dramatically reduce process cycle time, while lowering scratch defect rates and improving yields. AmberLap™ S600 is completely water dispersible and rinsible, and will not leave films or residues.
AmberLube™ 85R9 is a ready to use, waterless diamond lapping lubricant. It is specifically formulated for the fixed abrasive lapping of computer disk read/ write heads. The AmberLube™ 85R9 formula provides the unique ability to control pole tip, alumina and RTS (reader to shield) recession or protrusion. It also prevents ESD by quickly and effectively dissipating static charge build-up. AmberLube™ 85R9 imparts excellent surface finishes, improved removal rates and enhanced plate life. It does not contain water and is safe for use on PMR and advanced head designs. AmberLube™ 85R9 is easily cleaned with conventional polar solvents or water based cleaners.
