Wooam Super Polymer, a company with the No.1 share in the domestic Teflon heat exchanger market, is entering the overseas market. It plans to develop overseas markets such as China through overseas agencies.
Wooam Super Polymer is a secondary partner of Semes, a semiconductor equipment subsidiary of Samsung Electronics. The company's PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) Teflon heat exchanger is used in high-purity chemical and semiconductor manufacturing, and steel-making and steelmaking pickling processes, which are highly corrosive.
Cleaning equipment equipped with a heat exchanger is designed to heat chemical materials such as sulfuric acid, phosphoric acid, hydrofluoric acid, and isopropyl alcohol (IPA) at high temperatures, wash the wafer, and discharge the cleaned chemical waste liquid to an external treatment plant. When the waste liquid passes through the cold water circulating around the heat exchanger, the temperature drops.
Teflon, a heat exchanging material, has strong resistance to heat, abrasion, chemicals, and corrosion. Teflon is used because the chemicals used in semiconductor cleaning are highly toxic and corrosive. Teflon is a polymer composed of fluorine, carbon, and hydrogen, and also called fluororesin.
Recently, Wooam Super Polymer has been expanding to China, Taiwan, Japan, and USA through overseas agencies, as well as increasing its market share in Korea. Its Teflon heat exchangers are expanding their markets from semiconductors to chemical and steel industries.
Chemical heaters are also the main products. A chemical heater is used for heating in semiconductor cleaning equipment or solar equipment by immersion or indirect method. The company is planning to respond proactively to the increasing market demand for domestic products.
Founded in 1995, Wooam Super Polymer is headquartered in Anseong, Gyeonggi Province. Its main business is manufacturing Teflon chambers and chemical solution supply system (OEM) processing for Semes cleaning equipment. With PTFE molding, fusing and processing patents, the company produces heat exchangers, chemical heaters, and tanks. The company boasts about its products having superior quality and durability compared to competitors' products with differentiated technology.
