TempKoat™ P Positive Temporary Photoresist

TempKoat™ P is a chemically amplified, positive-tone resist series for advanced packaging and MEMS applications.

TempKoat™ P 20 is the first dilution available in the TempKoat™ P series.

Material Attributes:

  • Positive tone, chemically amplified resist
  • 10 to 40 µm film thickness in a single coat
  • i-Line/broadband sensitivity, 3:1 achievable aspect ratio
  • No rehydration or latency delay
  • Aqueous alkaline development (standard 0.26N TMAH)
  • Excellent chemical resistance and residue-free removal

Material Uses:

  • Electroplating
  • RDL
  • Microbumping
