Mersen S.A. Key Developments

Mersen Announces New Addition to Calcarb Range

Mersen has announced the launch of a next-generation insulation product in the Calcarb range. Designed and manufactured at the Holytown (Scotland) plant, a center of excellence for insulation solutions for very high-temperature industrial environments, this product delivers enhanced and still unmatched thermal conductivity and resilience for semiconductor manufacturing equipment. It is the result of an innovative production process developed in conjunction with the R&D teams and implemented to recent investments at the plant. The addition of this new higher-performance product to its range is increasing Mersen's market share with manufacturers of mono-crystal silicon- and compound-based semiconductors. Their strong expansion is related to the growing demand for more rapid, more compact and more efficient components for LED applications and power electronics, especially for electric vehicles.
