Enabling next-generation devices
Our customers are IC and FPD manufacturers and they depend on specialty chemical materials to drive their technology to the next level of development. Specialty chemicals enable IC manufacturers to produce smaller microchips with a higher transistor density. For FPD manufacturers, electronic materials are vital for the creation of advanced technology products. The importance of our materials to these manufacturing processes means that the industries we serve have certified supply chains that demand high levels of purity, consistency and reliability.
