ULTRA HIGH PURITY MATERIALS
For many high-tech and scientific applications, the physical and chemical properties of materials must be both highly reliable and constrained within very narrow parameters. The exact properties of interest often vary by application, but what many such properties have in common is that they are exquisitely sensitive to minor variations in the precise chemical composition of a material. Impurities present even as fractions of a percentage of the makeup of an otherwise pure material can drastically alter how the material as a whole conducts electricity, interacts with light, reacts chemically with other compounds, or stands up to environmental damage. For these reasons, high-purity materials (e.g. electronic-grade materials, semiconductor-grade materials) are absolutely essential in many fields.
High purity materials are mainly used in semiconductor devices including electronics and photovoltaics, biomedical and dental products such as ceramic or metal implants, optical devices such as lenses and optical fibers, and batteries, fuel cells, and supercapacitors for high-technology applications.
Rotalab supplies a variety of materials including metals, metal oxides, and metal salts, with 99.999% (5N) purity or higher.
