There are numerous applications for ammonium nitrates. One of the application requiring the purest forms of ammonium nitrate is the manufacture of electronics VLSI (very large-scale integration) or ULSI (ultra-large-scale integration) grade nitrous oxides. A stable supply of consistently high purity ammonium nitrate positively affects the whole supply chain in electronics, from the Industrial Gas Company that manufactures the gas down to the Electronics Manufacturer that needs this essential component in its production process.
The technical requirements for gases in the electronics industry are among the most stringent. That is why Yara has specifically developed Ammonium Nitrate Electronics Grade. By choosing it, you have the purest solid form ammonium nitrate, with no anti-caking agent or other additives. It is 99.9% pure. With such a high purity Ammonium Nitrate your gas production costs are reduced as you can decrease the number of purification steps required, as the high purity is maintained in the manufacturing process for electronics.
The efficient operation of an industrial gas plant, semiconductor fab or LCD plant require uninterrupted supply. Yara’s position as the world’s largest nitrates manufacturer and its worldwide logistics footprint with 200 terminals and warehouses around the world ensures you a reliable supply of the Ammonium Nitrates Electronics Grade you need. In addition, our advanced logistics systems offer full product traceability from our raw material to the end-user plant.
This is why the world’s most reliable gas companies have already chosen our product for their electronics VLSI or ULSI grade nitrous oxide.
Ammonium Nitrate is not toxic to handle and cannot burn or explode spontaneously. If exposed to heat or fire, Ammonium Nitrate can decompose and release toxic fumes.
