Chemetall, manufacturer of specialty chemicals, announced the opening of a new R&D facility located in the heart of Silicon Valley in Fremont, California. Chemetall’s Precision Microchemicals group develops and produces high purity coolants, lubricants, abrasive slurries and cleaners used in the machining and surface conditioning of electronic materials for device fabrication.

The Precision Microchemicals group operates a 12,000-square-foot facility comprised of administrative offices, an R&D laboratory and a Process Development laboratory, which specializes in lapping, polishing, chemo-mechanical polishing/planarizing (CMP), and cleaning.

“Our move to Silicon Valley is a smart, strategic decision because of its proximity to important industries such as semiconductor, LED, HDD and optics/photonics. These industries need local technical support, as well as collaborative manufacturing and logistics services,” says Niraj Mahadev, director of precision microchemicals. 

The company’s facility in Fremont is further supported by a cutting-edge manufacturing plant in Jackson Township, Michigan and global manufacturing sites in Frankfurt, Germany and Singapore. Products designed and developed in Fremont can be readily scaled and produced in any of Chemetall’s ISO 9001:2008 registered plants.

“Chemetall’s Precision Microchemical’s team offers best-in-class products to meet customers’ needs in the industry. In many instances, our clients require a solution utilizing customized chemistry. Chemetall excels in the rapid formulation and delivery of products to meet these specific needs,” Mahadev continues.

“Our company’s process development laboratory is specially equipped to evaluate the performance of abrasive slurries in lapping, polishing and CMP of electronic materials and subsequent cleaning processes. Our clients benefit from our simulation and testing capabilities during the initial evaluation of products.”
