Linde enters long-term silane supply agreement with Sodiff


Linde has signed a long-term contract with Sodiff Advanced Materials for the supply of electronic-grade silane. The agreement, the duration and cost of which were not specified in the announcement, will see the delivery of the silane from Sodiff’s facility at Youngju, Korea, which comes on line in the second half of 2009. This contract will account for a large proportion of Sodiff’s 2,000-tonne silane production output.

“Sodiff has become a major supplier of Silane and other electronic grade gases to the Linde Group over the last few years,” said Alex Cahill, Supply Chain Director for Linde Electronics. “They have a proven track record in the manufacture and supply of this key material, which is now qualified at all our global sites. This agreement demonstrates our commitment to customers, especially those in the emerging thin film photovoltaic (PV) market, by securing the long term supply of Silane for the coming years.”
