Discover the fantastic potential of Semitron plastics for your next project. Whether you're looking to maximize durability, improve heat resistance, or conduct electricity safely in various environments, Semitron plastics can provide dependable solutions to meet your needs.

Let’s explore the characteristics and properties of this material and discuss its many advantages and why it’s used in semiconductor applications. Learn why professionals across industries turn to nonmetallic alternatives like Semitron plastics when sourcing materials that deliver an unsurpassed combination of strength and performance.

What is Semitron?

Semitron is a family of electroplastic or static dissipative plastics designed and developed for applications where electrical discharge is of concern, making it an essential material in the semiconductor industry. It can resist dielectric rupture at high voltages, so it’s an excellent option for electronic and electrical components.

Its main characteristics are as follows:

  • Permanent static dissipative properties

  • Efficient management of static electricity

  • Available in sheet, rod, and machined parts

  • Chemical and wear-resistance

  • Incorporated in high-temperature applications

  • Improved weldability and machinability

  • Good dimensional stability

  • Impressive thermal performance

  • Excellent wear and friction resistance

These characteristics depend on the type of Semitron product you utilize. The extensive list of products in the Semitron family will be expounded below.
