KerfAid™ Dicing Surfactant

KerfAid Dicing Surfactant is a concentrated, aqueous-based solution of wetting agents and surfactants that reduces heat build-up and move swarf particles away from the kerf during the saw dicing process. It is completely water soluble, biodegradable and non-corrosive.

Given a potential for a 30% increase in blade life, improved cleanliness and up to 60% reduction of chipping an cracking, KerfAid Dicing Surfactant is a cost cutting, yield improving solution. When added to the cutting water by the DXL Series Surfactant Dispenser, KerfAid Dicing Surfactant provides an effective, integrated solution for improving saw dicing operations.
  • Features


    KerfAid Dicing Surfactant has four main functions: surfactant, lubricant, corrosion inhibitor and ESD preventative. All these factors contribute to an enhanced saw dicing process with improved yields.
