Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the Indianapolis Electronics Industry The worldwide electronics industry has grown significantly in the past forty years, and specialty gases have been instrumental in that growth – here in Indianapolis as much as wordwide. Clearly, the semiconductor industry as a whole depends heavily on gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They give the pure silicon that’s essential to semiconductor-based microprocessors the unique properties needed to power today’s watches, smart phones, and computers. Equally important, the drawing of fiber optic cable also depends on a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. Once common “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable are now being superseded increasingly by fiber optic cable, which has led to an ever-growing amount of high-purity helium being purposed for the fiber cable fabricating process. As it’s liquefied, helium turns into a low-temperature coolant that provides superconductivity to the magnets deployed in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that weakens normal electrical resistance and holds the promise of enabling electricity to be distributed with greater efficiency. To support semiconductor research, PurityPlus® manufactures pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We also can make research quantities of high-purity reactive gases in combinations comprising silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. What’s more, we can deliver specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These hardly account for all of the gases you can get from us. American Welding & Gas, Inc. further gives Indianapolis manufacturers access to the comprehensive PurityPlus® lineup of gas equipment like low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We can, in short, provide all the products you require, normally in the lesser volumes better suited to research and development. Besides which, you’ll be happy to know that every product we make meets every applicable industry standard and expectation. Our clientele includes companies in the following industries:Semiconductor (Memory Chip manufacturing) Photovoltaics (Solar) Light Emitting Diode (LED) Flat Panel Display (FPD TV) Fiber Optics Superconductivity Research For further details on how we can provide for all of your specialty gas and chemical imperatives, call American Welding & Gas, Inc. at , or contact us online today.
