  • Chemetall Precision Microchemicals BASF

    Optical, electro-optical and photonic materials require extreme precision during machining, finishing and cleaning operations. The critical processes of grinding, drilling, coring, sawing/wire sawing, lapping, polishing, CMP (Chemo-Mechanical Polishing/Planarizing), in and post-process cleaning, ultimately have a major impact on component performance. High purity, chemically engineered, coolants, lubricants, abrasive slurries/suspensions and cleaners are available for each machining, finishing and cleaning step. Glasses, ceramics, crystals, metals and plastics used in optics fabrication can be processed with Chemetall Precision Microchemicals’ formulations. Surface perfection and low sub-surface damage is achieved in machining processes with the optimum choice of coolant, lubricant, abrasive slurry and cleaner. Products are chemically engineered for each critical processing step of glasses, crystals and infra-red materials. Chemetall Precision Microchemicals backed up with the technical resources of BASF, the world’s leading chemical company, is based in Fremont, CA with a large-scale manufacturing factory in Michigan. The company develops and manufactures precision consumables for high technology industries in North America and Europe.  A similar R&D and large-scale factory in Singapore services the South East Asian markets.
