(July 13, 2010) — Entegris Inc. (NasdaqGS: ENTG) entered into a worldwide patent license agreement with 3S Korea Co. Ltd.

The agreement, which includes an initial licensing fee and royalty payments for past and future shipments of 300mm FOSBs, allows 3S Korea to manufacture and sell its 300mm FOSB.

“This agreement reflects a comprehensive intellectual property strategy that includes licensing certain segments of our patented technologies. This strategy complements our expanding sales of our 300mm FOSB products which are gaining traction in the market,” said William Shaner, VP and GM of the Microenvironments Division of Entegris. “We are excited to see the value of our state-of-the-industry wafer shipping technologies increase as we grow our licensee base.”
