General Information and Usage:

The facility contains 4 stainless steel solvent benches for general processing using organic solvents. All solvent waste (except for certain chemicals that are collected) are poured into cups and centrally collected. The benches consist of 2 embedded variable power Crest-ultrasonic units, one kept at 70°C for heating resist strippers and the other kept at room temperature for general solvent work. Laminar flow fume hoods with hepa filtration. Nitrogen guns are also on both sides of the bench for drying samples. Digital stirring hotplates are included for heating and stirring of resist stripers only (No solvent heating). POLOS spin dryers are included in the benches. All processes are done in user-supplied glassware. Solvents are stored in large steel flammable materials cabinets. Two people may use the bench at a time and protective gear such as proper gloves must be used. Solvents supplied by the laboratory are: Acetone, Methanol, Isopropanol, MIBK, MEK, Toluene, EBR100. PR strippers supplied by the lab are: 1165 (NMP), AZ300T (NMP + TMAH), PRX-127. Other chemicals should be OK'd by laboratory staff prior to use in the laboratory.
