Air Liquide to add fluorine cleaning gas solutions to customer offering


To meet industry demand, Air Liquide has decided to broaden its offer by proposing an alternative to existing cleaning gases for its customers, adding fluorine cleaning gas solutions to its offering.

The new option comes in addition to carrier and specialty gases and precursor materials used in the manufacturing process.

It’s a widely held belief that fluorine will become an alternative to nitrogen trifluoride (NF3) as the more commonly used cleaning solution in this sector.
