The adoption of LED solid state lighting is growing rapidly, driven in particular by applications such as LCD TV backlighting and low-power general illumination. To accommodate this expanding market, LED manufacturers need large quantities of nitrogen, high-purity ammonia, hydrogen and metal organics. They also need a flexible supply partner to support rapid, cost-effective increases in production.
We supply the full range of bulk and special gases required for LED manufacturing. As material requirements evolve, we are also committed to developing robust delivery solutions supported by a flexible and reliable supply chain for maximum productivity improvements. For example, we established China's first ultra-pure ammonia plant.
We complement our electronic materials portfolio and global supply chain with turnkey capabilities for larger LED fabs. These on-site facilities ensure a continuous, monitored and flexible supply of gas. Standardised and modular designs give you the added benefit of maximum cost efficiencies and reliability.
Our offering includes:
On-site ammonia purifiers
SPECTRA-N™ on-site nitrogen generators
On-site high-purity hydrogen generators.
Materials for LED Solid State Lighting Manufacture
Although requirements vary from one region to another, the following table shows the main bulk and electronic special gases we supply to LED manufacturers:
|Bulk Gases||Electronic special gases|
|Hydrogen||Dopants and metal organics|
We also offer hardware and expert engineering and materials management services. Here we help our customers to minimise downtime and risks by ensuring safe and smooth process flows and by regularly sharing our detailed gas and chemical knowledge.
|Bulk special gas systems (BSGS)||Turnkey design and engineering|
|Gas cabinets and gas distribution manifolds||Total gas and chemical management|
|Valve manifold boxes and panels||Total materials management|
