Passive components used in today’s electronics products are manufactured in a variety of processes.
Types of capacitors manufactured include tantalum (both solid and wet), ceramic (both multilayer chip and disk), film, power, heavy-current, and aluminum.
Resistive technology options include thin film, thick film, metal oxide film, carbon film, and wirewound.
The passive components that are fired, whether directly onto a ceramic board or chip components, use a high temperature process which requires either an inerting atmosphere or a reactive atmosphere to accomplish the binding of the ceramic or metallic base materials to achieve form and function. Air Products offers that atmospheres you require in your manufacturing process.
