SU-8 is today one of the key technologies for developing microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and especially for microfluidic systems. However, they have significant drawbacks in the fabrication of multilayered structures. To overcome these drawbacks, dry film photoresists (DFR) are favorably be used. The IWE 1 developed a lamination process for a dry film photoresist.
