Intercept Technology is state-of-the-art corrosion protection developed by Alcatel Lucent Bell Labs to solve problems they were experiencing with Corrosion.
The Intercept Technology is a revolutionary product reacting solid state reactive materials into a polymer matrix. These reactive materials react with and neutralize all corrosive gases that contact the film.
Protection against corrosive gases is 10 years per mil of Intercept material. Intercept protects Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metals as well as preventing Galvanic Corrosion.
Metals corrode (tarnish) by reaction with common gases in the atmosphere. These corrosive gases react with both Ferrous (Iron based) and Non-Ferrous metals, however these gases are the primary cause for Non-Ferrous metal (such as Silver, Tin, Copper, Brass, etc.) corrosion.

Companies using Static Intercept have reported substantial decreases in latent defects (caused almost exclusively by corrosion and ESD) as well as in work in process failures (WIP materials) leading to increased yields. Intercept is safe and effective for direct wafer contact, as well as for storing and shipping boards, assemblies, missile components, and irreplaceable art works.
