LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Products (NYSE: APD) today announced the expansion of its electronic materials development and production facility in Carlsbad, Calif. New materials developed in Carlsbad will help enable next-generation consumer devices such as smartphones and tablet computers.

The Carlsbad expansion includes an upgrade to laboratory facilities to support development and the scale-up of new products. As part of this investment in development capabilities, the Carlsbad applications laboratory will install new tools for product development and process demonstration. In addition, the analytical labs are being built out to support the analysis and performance testing of new materials.

"This investment in the Carlsbad development labs supports the introduction of new products such as our AP-LTO® and AP-LTN® chemical precursors for use in depositing modified silicon nitride and oxide films in various deposition processes including Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD), Plasma Enhanced Atomic Layer Deposition (PEALD), and Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD)," said Jim Giolitto, business manager, Electronic Materials Chemicals. "Demand for these innovative new products is growing rapidly."

Commercial-scale production facilities also have been expanded in Carlsbad. In particular, Air Products' PDEMS® product line is experiencing strong growth as producers of microprocessors and other logic devices implement next-generation, low-K dielectrics. To support this growth, Air Products has expanded production capabilities for its DEMS® chemical and associated porogens.

"Building upon a long history of developing innovative new products for the semiconductor industry, Air Products is excited to invest in our capabilities to create the next-generation materials our customers need," said Corning Painter, vice president and general manager, Electronics, for Air Products.
