Supplier of Specialty Gases and Chemicals to the St. Louis Electronics Industry

The international electronics industry has increasingly made its presence felt in our lives over the past four decades or so, and specialty gases can take credit for much of that – here in St. Louis, not just internationally. Without doubt, the semiconductor industry as a whole depends heavily on gases and chemicals of extremely high purity. They give the pure silicon that’s employed by semiconductor-based microprocessors the singular properties necessary for running our ever more technologically advanced watches, smart phones, and computers.

Just as crucial a point, the drawing of fiber optic cable also relies on a protective atmosphere of high-purity helium. As fiber optic cable is used increasingly in place of outmoded “twisted pair” copper wire and coaxial cable, the amount of high-purity helium allocated for the fiber cable manufacturing process continues to grow. When liquefied, helium becomes a low-temperature coolant that delivers superconductivity to the magnets used in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as well as to superconducting wire that cuts down normal electrical resistance and holds the promise of enabling electricity to be disseminated with greater efficiency.  

To encourage semiconductor research, PurityPlus® makes pure gases in VLSI, research, and electronic grades of nitrogen, helium, argon, and hydrogen. We also can formulate research quantities of high-purity reactive gases in combinations comprising silane, phosphine, diborane, and arsine. Additionally, we can make specialty fluorocarbons, hydrogen chloride, ammonia, and ultra-high-purity oxygen for etching. These are only an example of the gases you can get from us.

Cee Kay Supply, Inc. also gives St. Louis manufacturers access to the comprehensive PurityPlus® inventory of gas equipment including low dead-volume regulators, gas cabinets, and monitoring systems. We’ve got the products you have to have, usually in the reduced volumes more appropriate for research and development. Not only that, but you’ll be happy to know that every product we make meets every applicable industry standard and expectation.

Our clients include manufacturers in industies such as:

  • Semiconductor (Memory Chip manufacturing)
  • Photovoltaics (Solar)
  • Light Emitting Diode (LED)
  • Flat Panel Display (FPD TV)
  • Fiber Optics
  • Superconductivity Research
