Our unmatched product quality is the result of proven systems and continuous improvement - Kanto has been in the electronics chemical business for over forty years and in the United States for ten. We have invested over $50 million in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, located in Portland, Oregon, to establish of our world-class capabilities in the United States.

Kanto is committed to supplying consistently pure material. This is possible through the selection of suitable raw materials, packaging, qualified purification and manufacturing processes, and filling processes in advanced production plants under cleanroom conditions. Kanto uses dedicated systems for each chemical and grade to prevent any cross contamination and ensure the highest purity product each time.

We ensure the product quality even beyond our manufacturing process, from careful selection and testing of materials used for containers to our proprietary cleaning and filling process. Our post-production logistics prevent contamination.

To further develop our knowledge about how Kanto quality can provide process benefits to our customers, Stanford University has performed some research on Kanto's products. A recent paper entitled "Deposition of Aluminum on Silicon from SC1 Solution" concluded that the control of aluminum contamination is necessary to obtain thin oxide dielectrics with good thickness control. Further, the SC1-last cleaning sequences require <10ppt aluminum baths; Kanto's products exceed this requirement.
