Standard resist AR-P 3510 – 30 years on the world market
The 30th company anniversary last year which we celebrated together with the Minister President of Brandenburg, Dietmar Woidke, was also an occasion for us to reflect on the roots and the history of Allresist. Back in autumn 1992, Brigitte Schirmer and Matthias Schirmer founded the Allresist GmbH; they rented the technical center of the former “Fotochemische Werke” in Berlin-Köpenick and took over the entire know-how of the resist production to which developement they had contributed considerably in the past.

Right from the beginning, the idea of sustainability was firmly anchored in the philosophy of our young company. One of the first advanced developments of Allresist was the replacement of teratogenic solvents in the positive photoresist AR-P 351 with safer solvents. This is how the standard resist AR-P 3510 was created, in which the excellent lithographic properties of AR-P 351 were retained, but the resist was now significantly less dangerous to health for the user. We informed our customers about the progress, and in most cases, the changeover to the new product took place extremely quickly. Over the past 30 years, more than 32 tons of AR-P 3510 resist have been sold.
In appreciation of our history, this success has prompted us to choose this resist as resist of the month of January.
