"99.9998% Purity"…STI localizes SiC Ingot powder

STI has managed to localize silicon carbide (SiC) ingot powder, a key semiconductor material.

SiC powder is used as a key material for semiconductor wafer ingots. Sourcing has relied entirely on imports.

STI independently developed the "Physical Vapor Transport (PVT) Growth," a SiC semiconductor ingot manufacturing equipment,

and invested KRW 10 billion with about 20 researchers to develop SiC ingot powder.

In the first stage, after securing technology through ingot growth, STI have managed to develop the ingot powder.

STI is an equipment company that has mainly developed equipment such as semiconductor quartz glass electric furnaces and SiC semiconductor growth furnaces.

With the development of SiC ingot powder, it is planning to leap into a niche business that encompasses equipment and materials.

In addition to STI, SK Siltron and Hana Materials are also attempting to localize SiC wafers, ingots, and powders following their semiconductor wafer business progress.
