Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the Richmond, Virginia Electronics Industry

The worldwide electronics industry has increasingly made its presence felt in our lives as the last four decades, in particular, have streaked by, and specialty gases can take credit for a lot of that – here in Richmond, Virginia as much as globally. As insiders know, the entire semiconductor industry must have gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They give the pure silicon that’s used in semiconductor-based microprocessors the unique properties necessary for running our ever more technologically advanced watches, smart phones, and computers.

Equally critical, the drawing of fiber optic cable also needs a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. As fiber optic cable is used increasingly in place of conventional “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable, the amount of high-purity helium provided to the fiber cable production process continues to grow. As it’s liquefied, helium turns into a low-temperature coolant that supplies superconductivity to the magnets employed in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that cuts down normal electrical resistance and promises to enable the more-efficient dissemination of electricity.  

To help sustain semiconductor research, PurityPlus® offers pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We also can deliver research quantities of high-purity reactive gases in compounds including silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. Besides that, we can manufacture specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These are just a sample of the gases we have for you.

Arc3 Gases further offers Richmond, Virginia manufacturers the full PurityPlus® lineup of gas equipment such as low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We’ve got the products you use, typically in the reduced volumes better suited to research and development. Not only that, but you’ll be happy to know that every product we make meets every applicable industry regulation and expectation.
