PARIS, FRANCE: Air Liquide was awarded a major long-term contract in China to supply ultra-pure carrier molecules to their first fab that will manufacture Oxide-TFT screens for mobile devices and TV sets on Generation 8.5 size (G8.5) glass substrates. The contract was awarded by CEC Panda Flat Panel Display Technology Co Ltd, joint venture of CEC-Panda and Sharp LCD.

Air Liquide will invest around €25 million in a large on-site generator to produce ultra-high purity nitrogen and required bulk gases and back-up infrastructures for CEC-Panda’s new fab, which will be based in Nanjing Crystal Park, in Jiangsu Province, China. The total amount of ultra-pure nitrogen under the new contract will be 23,000 Nm³/h. Air Liquide will also supply electronic specialty gases, equipment and installation, and on-site management.

“We are honoured by CEC-Panda’s decision to expand our relationship to the supply of their new fab in the Nanjing Crystal Park. This new contract attests to our ability to supply leading electronics customers with products and services that meet the highest standards. It also reaffirms the value and competitiveness of our offer and our position in the fast growing mobility and smart devices revolution. Air Liquide is positioned to capture the growth of the high resolution and next generation mobile displays,” said Michael J Graff, Senior Vice-President for the Americas and Executive Committee member overseeing Electronics, Air Liquide.
