Neon: It’s more than a flickering motel sign

The bright orange glow of a neon sign is easy to spot (NAICS 339950/3993); in fact, neon (Ne) was recognized as a new element precisely because of its bright red emission spectrum. But even though neon signs have become harder to find, neon is still used in lighting (NAICS 335110)—for example, as the pilot light … Continued

Xenon Gas: Industrial and Commercial Uses

Customers in the semiconductor, lighting, medical, and research industries are very familiar with xenon gas and its many uses. But because of its rarity, an estimated 87 ppb (parts per billion) in the atmosphere, xenon is expensive, which means that it has many more potential uses that are not yet economically feasible. As manufacturing costs … Continued

Hexafluoro-1,3-butadiene (C4F6) Gas Spotlight

Hexafluoro-1,3-butadiene (C4F6) is a colorless, odorless, flammable liquefied gas. Years of research have shown that C4F6 (H-2316) presents several advantages for dry etching of oxide-based materials:    It has a higher etch rate and selectivity than octafluorocyclobutane (c-C4F8 – H318), another extensively used etchant for silicon oxide. Unlike C4F8 (H318), with C4F6 (H2316), only the … Continued

Hexafluoroethane Gas Spotlight

Hexafluoroethane also known as Halocarbon 116, or perfluoroethane is a stable, nontoxic, nonflammable gas that is essential to three very different industries: semiconductor and microsystem manufacturing, refrigeration, and medical. In each industry, buyers appreciate different characteristics of the gas, but in both manufacturing and medical, purity is the greatest concern. Where to buy? Electronic Fluorocarbons … Continued

Tetrafluoromethane Gas Spotlight Blog

A colorless, nonflammable gas, tetrafluoromethane-also known as halocarbon 14 or carbon tetrafluoride- is known as the simplest fluorocarbon because it consists of one carbon atom in the middle that binds to four fluorine atoms around the outside (CF4). However, its uses are anything but simple. CF4 has a very low boiling point (‑128°C, ‑202°F), defining it … Continued
