Entegris, Inc. NASDAQ: ENTG is a provider of products and systems that purify, protect, and transport critical materials used in the semiconductor device fabrication process.

The company seeks to help manufacturers increase their yields by improving contamination control in several key processes, including photolithography, wet etching & cleaning, chemical-mechanical planarization, thin-film deposition, bulk chemical processing, wafer and reticle handling and shipping, and testing, assembly and packaging. Approximately 80% of the Company's products are used in the semiconductor industry.

Entegris products include: filtration products that purify process gases and fluids, as well as the ambient environment; liquid systems and components that dispense, control, or transport process fluids; high-performance materials and specialty gas management solutions; wafer carriers and shippers that protect the semiconductor wafer from contamination and breakage; and specialized graphite, silicon carbide, and coatings.
