Technological Advancements and Sustainability

Glass wafer carriers are meticulously crafted from thin glass materials such as borosilicate and alumino-borosilicate, known for their high thermal expansion and transmittance properties. These materials allow the carriers to withstand high temperatures during processing without deforming, thereby minimizing mechanical stress and maintaining wafer integrity during critical manufacturing steps. Due to these superior properties, glass wafer carriers can be used multiple times, enhancing their sustainability and reducing overall wafer production costs.
