Proprietary VEM Ultra Pure Au Process ...
Ups Yield and Tool Performance
Historically Au evaporation is plagued by "spitting" issues due to excessive carbon, which results in decreased yield and tool productivity.  VEM's Ultra Pure Au (UP Au) evaporation material removes impurities through a proprietary manufacturing process AND has been proven to eliminate "spitting" for some of our customers.
VEM's manufactured 5N purity UP Au evaporation pellets have >80% LESS impurities when compared to the competition.
Contact Melvin Hirata for more information and to order your samples.
