SIMONA® PVC VS-1 PVC VS-1 is a fire-safe PVC material which is FM 4910 listed. It is made from PVC, similar to Type I, but formulated for better fire retardancy.
The semiconductor and electronics industry demands sophisticated, controlled processing environments to ensure a high level of quality in its valuable goods. Manufacturing areas and cleanrooms are designed to be virtually free of contamination at every stage of production. After all, the investments made are considerable: billion-dollar wafer fabrication plants, multi dollar tooling and expensive work in process and finished goods. Fires and other upset conditions cost time, resources and reputations.
Specifications and Standards
Recently, fire protection methods, processing conditions and the materials used in the tooling of plants have been scrutinized by organizations that include underwriters, public safety overseers, technical councils and advisors as well as testing laboratories and trade associations. The national Fire Protection Association Underwriters Laboratories Inc. and Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International are among the influential groups addressing products performance specifications and standards.
Reducing Risk and Loss Due to Fire
One method to reduce risk and loss due to fire is to increase the flame retardancy of materials used for fabrication tools found within cleanrooms and processing areas of fab plants. The complexity of tooling design demands a variety of sheet options, suited to the application and manufacturing conditions.
