Jaa

Versum Materials, Inc. (NYSE: VSM), a leading global materials supplier to the semiconductor industry, and NuMat Technologies, a pioneer in the design and integration of atomically-engineered materials into gas delivery, separation and purification systems, today announced a global, commercial agreement to offer a new line of products for the safe storage and delivery of dopant gases such as arsine, phosphine and boron trifluoride. The new product line is called ION-X ® and is based on revolutionary Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs), which can selectively adsorb, store and safely deliver ultrahigh purity gases at sub-atmospheric pressures. ION-X® offers performance advantages over traditional carbon-based adsorbent technology used in the ion implant processes for the manufacture of semiconductor devices.

Jim Minicucci, general manager for Versum's Process Materials, Asia commented, "NuMat and Versum are combining their respective leadership positions, with NuMat manufacturing the proprietary MOFs and Versum harnessing its world-class global footprint to manufacture, commercialize, and distribute the ION-X® product globally. Building on our long-history in Specialty Gases, we plan to design and construct a new ION-X® dopant gas fill plant at our production site in Sihwa, South Korea."

“We are excited about working together with NuMat Technologies to deliver ION-X® products to our global customer base. ION-X® represents a new and differentiated growth opportunity, is complementary to our Process Materials business, and further aligns with our core competencies as a leading specialty gas manufacturer and supplier,” stated Ed Shober, Senior Vice President of Materials at Versum Materials.

“We are pleased to announce our agreement with Versum Materials to globally commercialize ION-X®. This relationship with Versum represents a strategic pairing of NuMat’s differentiated technology platform with Versum’s operational, quality and commercial leadership in the semiconductor industry. We look forward to executing against a shared mission of delivering value and innovation to customers,” stated Ben Hernandez, Chief Executive Officer at NuMat Technologies.
