Vector HTA-D

Synthetic Coolant/Lubricant for Diamond Wire Cropping and Squaring

VECTOR HTA-D is an aqueous based synthetic formulation developed to optimize cropping and squaring of siliconingots using diamond wire. VECTOR HTA-D allows thediamond wire to saw properly through the silicon by keeping the Si/Diamond interface free cutting and clean. The matrix in which the diamond is contained is lubricated and cleaned allowing for consistent sustainable cutting at higher speeds typical of diamond wire cropping and squaring saws. Heat transfer characteristics of the diluted product (3%) also insure prolonged diamond life. VECTOR HTA-D’s foam-free characteristicensures compatibility with all filtration systems. The product is odor free, safe and biodegradable. Vector HTA-D may also be used as an edge-grinding coolant/lubricant in re-circulating coolant systems. A next generation variant of this product has since been developed, see VECTOR HTA-D2 for more information. Benefits: • Optimized surface finishes • Optimized removal rates • Makes silicon easier to clean post-sawing • Non-foaming • Optimized wire life • Non-staining • Compatible with all filtering systems • Non-corrosive • Operator friendly

Handling Instructions

VECTOR HTA-D is designed for use at economical dilution ratios and is equally effective in hard and soft water (though DI or softened water is best). Maintaining dilution ratios with a hand-held industrial fluid tester (refractometer) is recommended. Develop production-specific scales by obtaining accurately measured samples of a properly diluted mixture that corresponds to use.


Product should be stored in a temperature controlled environment. Prolonged exposure to temperatures at or below 32° Fahrenheit (0°C) is discouraged. Prolonged exposure to temperatures at or above 100° Fahrenheit (38°C) is also discouraged. In addition, material should always be sealed when not in use to prevent evaporation.


Dispose of in accordance with all applicable local regulations.
