PROTELEC getter materials are used to ensure a hermetic (sealed) environment is available within electronics packages such as source lasers, gyroscopes, microwaves and medical packaging, to prevent premature device failure.
The use of scavengers to prevent the build-up of H2O, hydrogen and other unwanted species that are inherently trapped within the metallised layers of the package or from components within the package, are becoming increasingly more common place. If these unwanted species were allowed to reside inside the package, the hermetic atmosphere of the device would be at risk.
PROTELEC getters can be used in a number of applications across a variety of markets including, medical, military, aerospace, oil and gas, high reliability telecoms and in consumer markets.
