July 5, 2012 — Air Liquide will supply the ultra-pure carrier and electronic specialty gases to 3 new cutting-edge flat panel display (FPD) fabs manufacturing advanced active-matrix organic light emitting diode (AMOLED), low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS), micro electo mechanical systems (MEMS), and OLED displays. Those technologies are currently under commercial development.
These display fabs are located in Singapore, Japan, and Taiwan, making display panels for next-generation smartphones and tablets.
Electronics specialty gases (ESG) and carrier gases are used to deposit, clean, and functionalize material layers for thin film transistor (TFT) displays. Air Liquide is partnering with leading customers to develop novel precursors, gases and innovative packaging solutions that help resolve industry challenges in deposition, ion implantation and encapsulation.
Air Liquide will supply electronic specialty gases, equipment and installation, and on-site total gas management services for 2 new large-scale fabs in China that manufacture large Gen 8.5 panels. These gases will be provided by Air Liquide Electronic Centers strategically located in Asia. Air Liquide recently strengthened its position with each of the flat panel market innovation segments, signing multiple contracts and enlarging its gases & services offer.
