Abstract

Sawn wafers are typically shipped in packages comprising layers of non-shedding and non-contami- nating paper placed between the wafers with outer cardboard layers. The layered package is held together by tape. The taped package is then placed in a foil bag which is sealed. Groups of bags are held together by rubber bands according to the quantity of wafers required. Present packaging allows up to 10 wafers per foil bag.
