Photoresist Manufacturers

Below is a list of photoresist manufacturers and a table of photoresists. We do not claim that either of these is comprehensive. There are other manufacturers and photoresists, but these are some of the more common ones. Some of the names given in the photoresist table are the names of series and not individual resists. A series may include many individual photoresists. Some photoresists have more information than others. We only included information that was easily and quickly obtainable from the manufacturers' websites. Many of them may have more uses or applications than noted here. Some manufacturers provide datasheets or product guides and the links for those have been included in the table. If you desire more information about a specific photoresist please check the manufacturer's website or contact the manufacturer.
