Abstract:
A carrier (100) for semiconductor wafers (106) to be polished comprises a backing pad (110) vulcanized to a pressure plate (108). The backing pad (110) is formed of a rubber material such as neoprene, SBR or natural rubber. An adhesive film of a thermosetting, thermally reactive material forms an integral bond between the backing pad (110) and pressure plate (108). The backing pad (110), adhesive film and pressure plate (108) together comprise a nearly ideally elastic assembly. The exposed face of the backing pad (110) is profiled to a desired profile without effecting crumbling of the rubber material.
