August Newsletter: Semiconductors

                Every aspect of the modern era is monitored, influenced or controlled by one or more semiconductor electronic devices. The typical semiconductor device is a complex array of transistors and integrated circuits that work in unison to provide the functionality of our computers, cell phones, televisions, automobiles and … Continued

July Newsletter: Valves

                Electronic Fluorocarbons offers both CGA (Compressed Gas Association) and DISS (diameter index safety system) valves in a variety of materials for compressed gas cylinders. CGA valves are the standard system for connecting to a cylinder transfer line with a valve outlet nut. DISS connections, consisting of a … Continued

April Gas Spotlight: Sulfur Hexafluoride

              Because of its major importance to the electrical industry, coupled with its global warming potential, sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) presents some special challenges for customers. As one of the largest suppliers and a major recycler of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), Electronic Fluorocarbons is in a unique position to help. Using … Continued

February 2018 Gas Spotlight: Octafluoropropane

    Octafluoropropane (C3F8) has a secure future, not only in the semiconductor and electronics industries, but in medicine and physics as well. Octafluoropropane (also known as halocarbon 218) is made by either chemical fluorination or by a procedure known as the Fowler process, which was created in World War II to develop enough coolant … Continued

December 2017 Gas Spotlight-Butane

                If you’ve ever held a cigarette lighter in your hand, you’ve held a container of butane. In addition to serving as a fuel for cigarette lighters (NAICS 339910), butane increases the octane level of motor gasoline; helps to produce other petrochemicals as a feedstock; replaces methane as … Continued

October 2017 Newsletter: Gas Spotlight on Neon

                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 … Continued

August 2017 Newsletter-Gas Spotlight on Xenon

              Your customers in the semiconductor, lighting, medical, and research industries are very familiar with xenon 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 … Continued

June 2017 Newsletter-Gas Spotlight on Hexafluoro-1,3-butadiene

              Wet and dry etching technologies are used in the semiconductor industry to transfer a specific pattern from a mask layer to the underlying surface. Wet chemical etching is performed in a liquid chemical mixture where the goal is to produce reactive products that will be dissolved in a … Continued

April 2017 Newsletter-Gas Spotlight on Hexafluorotheane (C2F6)

  Hexafluoroethane-C2F6, 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. Cleaning and Etching Semiconductors and … Continued

February 2017 Newsletter-Gas Spotlight on Tetrafluoromethane (CF4)

              If your customers are in the medical, aerospace, semiconductor, or computer industries, tetrafluoromethane is one of the chemicals they may be looking for. Customers value tetrafluoromethane—also known as halocarbon14 or carbon tetrafluoride—for its cryogenic properties (its ability to supercool) and its service as a cleaning or etching medium. … Continued
