Aluminum Nitride (AlN) Overview
Ortech Inc. provides state-of-the-art Aluminum Nitride (AlN) manufactured by the most cost-effective processes. Ortech also maintains efficient, large-scale manufacturing facilities that support quick-turn prototype development and high-volume production. AlN has found to replace beryllium oxide (BeO) in the semiconductor industry due to BeO’s toxicity, in addition to the thermal expansion coefficient of AlN is lower than BeO or Alumina, and closely matches that of the Silicon wafers used in electronics. Electronic and structural grades of this material exist, classified as such by the thermal conductivity, which is controlled by the purity of the AlN. Pristine material is white, high-purity is tan, and a gray color indicates contaminants.
