TOK makes photoresists,
chemical that is essential for the manufacture of semiconductors.
Among the chemicals needed to manufacture semiconductors are photoresists, a chemical that is especially important for this process. Photoresists are used with the technology known as photolithography.

TOK has the top share of the global market for semiconductor photoresists.*1
In 1968, TOK began developing and selling the first made-in-Japan semiconductor photoresists. These days, we offer a full lineup of photoresists compatible with all exposure machines and are highly competitive in the market.
Our products, which are used to semiconductor manufacturing featuring cutting-edge circuits produced at a scale of several nanometers, are supported by two global-leading core technologies.
The history of this company is one that has seen growth alongside the semiconductor market after beginning the business of manufacturing high-purity potassium hydroxide, which helps extend the life of storage batteries, and since TOK launched photoresists for semiconductors.
Behold the semiconductors that contribute to the convenience and richness of people’s lives and TOK’s product range offered in support of these semiconductors. This next section will explain how the world of the future can be realized through the further evolution of TOK.
