This bath was originally pulled from a working semiconductor fabrication plant. Includes drain valve of some kind (see pictures).
Made from fused quartz glass and PVDF it is highly Chemical resistant to most acids, even at high temperatures. It’s also insulated well for high-temperature use. This should work as an excellent DIY (Do It Yourself) metal home plating and anodizing aluminum.
We have more of these and similar quartz baths in stock. Most should be listed but contact us if you dont see what you need. Some baths have cracked quartz inserts so they are discounted even further.
Wafab Fused Quartz Glass Bath #5702. Built-In Heater for Constant High-Temperature Use. Frame Constructed of chemical resistant PVDF.
Quartz Baths are Process Components used in the Semiconductor industry, Solar panels fabrication and many research and development applications when high purity standards are required. Constant temperature quartz baths used in industries where high purity processing and consistency are demanded.
Quartz Bath System Specifications:
- DIY (Do It Yourself): At home PLATING of metals and ANODIZING aluminum*
- Application: Etching, Stripping, & Cleaning.
- Chemical usage H2SO4, H2O2, HCI, etc.and most acids.

Properties of Fused Quartz:
Fused quartz is an extraordinary material for numerous industrial applications. The single-component glass consists solely of silica (SiO2). Through its unique combination of thermal, mechanical and optical properties, fused quartz is one of the most important materials for industry and research.
For the Semiconductor and Solar industries, fused quartz is used in high temperature processes because of its high softening point, low thermal expansion and excellent thermal shock resistance. It can withstand temperatures up to 1300°C and can be rapidly heated and cooled with virtually no risk of breakage. Because of its high purity, parts and systems made of fused quartz are ideal suited for industry equipment.
For the Lighting industry, fused quartz is an indispensable material due to the high optical transmission from ultraviolet through the infrared light.
For the Chemical industry and for laboratory equipment, fused quartz is used because of its resistance to acids, bases and water. With the exception of hydrofluoric acid, phosphoric acid, and alkaline compounds its properties are unaffected.
For the Electronics industry, fused quartz is characterized by high dielectric strength, low electrical conductivity and superior microwave transmission even at high temperatures.
