Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the Northern Illinois Electronics Industry

The global electronics industry has virtually exploded as the last four decades, in particular, have streaked by, and specialty gases can be credited for a lot of that – as much in Northern Illinois as anywhere else. To be sure, the semiconductor industry as a whole must have gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They lend singular properties to the pure sillicon used in semiconductor-based microprocessors, which are pretty much par for the course in today’s watches, smart phones, and computers.

Just as crucial a point, the drawing of fiber optic cable also necessitates a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. As fiber optic cable continues to supplant the old “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable, the volume of high-purity helium purposed for the fiber cable production process continues to grow. When liquefied, helium becomes a low-temperature coolant that supplies superconductivity to the magnets employed in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that weakens normal electrical resistance and promises to enable the more-efficient dissemination of electricity.  

To promote semiconductor research, PurityPlus® delivers pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We also can provide research quantities of high-purity reactive gases in combinations comprising silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. Additionally, we can make specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These are just a sample of the gases we have for you.

Weldstar Specialty Gases also offers Northern Illinois manufacturers the comprehensive PurityPlus® lineup of gas equipment such as low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We’re here with the products you demand, typically in the reduced amounts more appropriate for research and development. Besides which, you can trust that each of our products meets every applicable industry standard and expectation.

Our customers include businesses in industies like the following:

  • Semiconductor (Memory Chip manufacturing)
  • Photovoltaics (Solar)
  • Light Emitting Diode (LED)
  • Flat Panel Display (FPD TV)
  • Fiber Optics
  • Superconductivity Research
