TOK's Business

What business is TOK engaged in?

We supply an assortment of manufacturing materials centered around photoresist used in fabricating semiconductors, flat panel displays, and printed wiring boards, as well as the photoresist-related chemicals. We also furnish equipment that are indispensable for leading-edge microprocess of fabricating semiconductors and liquid-crystal-display panels. In addition, we offer photopolymer plates and pre-sensitized plates, which are in widespread use in the printing field, as well as high-purity chemicals for use by industries in the fields of chemistry, electronics, pharmaceuticals, food products, and textiles.

What is photoresist?

Photoresist is a kind of resin with a chemical action and change in response to light, and is also known as photosensitive resin. It is in extensive use as a material essential for microprocessing in fields such as semiconductors, flat panel displays, and printed circuit boards.

How does photoresist change when it is irradiated with (exposed to) light?

Q3 photoregist

Undergoing the process of development after exposure, the exposed portion of negative tone photoresist is retained as an image, and the unexposed portion of positive tone photoresist is retained as an image.
Photo.1 was taken after exposure and development, and shows photoresist retaining an image of the portion shown by the red arrow.

What are the types of photoresist?

The main types are a liquid type and a dry type. The dry type takes the form of a thin film and is called "dry film resist".
Mainly the liquid type is used in the field of semiconductors and liquid crystal displays (LCDs), and mainly the dry type, in that of plasma displays (PDPs) and printed circuit boards.

What is the role of photoresist?

Q5 photoresist

Photoresist is used for processing with chemicals, for example. In this processing, the image portion remains unaffected by the chemicals, such that only the other portions are etched or otherwise processed.
In Photo.2, the red portion will be processed while the blue portion will be protected by the photoresist and left unprocessed. Application of photoresist therefore enables selective processing.
