Chemical manufacturer Chemtura expands capacity and forms Korean joint venture targeting HB-LEDs
Aug 19, 2010 Chemtura Organometallics GmbH of Bergkamen, Germany, a subsidiary of US-based specialty chemical manufacturer Chemtura Corp. announces that the company will further expand Bergkamen plant to provide a sustainable supply for tomorrow's global customer requirements of the specialty chemicals trimethylaluminum (TMA), methylaluminoxane (MAO), and diethylzinc (DEZ).
Chemtura and South Korea’s UP Chemical Co Ltd have already signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to form a joint venture that will manufacture and sell high-purity metal-organic precursors for the rapidly growing HB-LED market, focusing particularly on South Korea and the broader Asia-Pacific region.
The JV will leverage Chemtura's capability and technology related to metal-organic precursors for polymerization and other specialty applications, together with its backward integration for TMA for HB-LEDs.
This will combine with UP Chemical’s capabilities in supplying high-purity metal-organic precursors for chemical vapor deposition (CVD) systems at semiconductor device makers in South Korea and the Asia Pacific.
The JV expects to begin supplying precursors to the HB-LED market by December, and to have fully integrated manufacturing capabilities for trimethylgallium (TMG) and trimethylaluminum (TMA) established in Korea in late 2011.
