Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the Western Michigan Electronics Industry

The international electronics industry has grown by leaps and bounds in the last forty years, and specialty gases have played a leading role in that growth – here in Western Michigan, not just wordwide. Clearly, the whole semiconductor industry requires gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They lend unique properties to the pure sillicon that’s essential to semiconductor-based microprocessors, which can be found everywhere in new watches, smart phones, and computers.

Not to be overlooked, the drawing of fiber optic cable also depends on a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. As fiber optic cable replaces the more familiar “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable, the amount of high-purity helium committed to the fiber cable production process continues to mushroom. When liquefied, helium becomes a low-temperature coolant that supplies superconductivity to the magnets used in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that reduces normal electrical resistance and promises to permit the more-efficient distribution of electricity.  

To advance semiconductor research, PurityPlus® makes pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We also can produce research quantities of high-purity reactive gases in combinations incorporating silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. Beyond that, we can make specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These represent only a small sampling of the gases we have for you.

GTW additionally gives Western Michigan manufacturers access to the total PurityPlus® inventory of gas equipment like low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We’ve got the products you require, typically in the lesser quantities more suitable for research and development. Besides which, you’ll be happy to know that every product we make meets every applicable industry standard and expectation.

Our customers include manufacturers in the following industries:

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