Nouryon High Purity Metalorganics (HPMO) supplies metalorganic sources which are an essential ingredient for the semiconductor industry. We are specialized in the production of high purity metalorganics sources based on aluminum, indium, gallium, zinc and magnesium. Our products are used in a wide range of industrial and consumer applications, including lasers, solar cells, LEDs and smartphones. We have a strong base in industrial scale metalorganics production and are a fully vertically integrated high purity metalorganics supplier.
As part of the global Nouryon organization, we leverage on its network for distribution, service, manufacturing expertise, global R&D, and expertise in safe handling of metalorganics. Nouryon HPMO strives continually to address our customers’ future needs. Our dedicated global technical marketing and sales team, comprised of scientists and engineers with experience in both the chemical and semiconductor industry, is available to meet your needs.
We produce our own high trimethylaluminum (TMAl) and triethyaluminum (TEAl). This TMAl and TEAl is then purified and used as raw material in the production of the other group III high purity metalorganics, including: triethylgallium, trimethylgallium, dimethylzinc, diethylzinc and trimethylindium. We continually invest in high-quality standards, innovation, safety, active technical support and central distribution systems for bulk delivery of our products.
Our main HPMO manufacturing facility is located in La Porte, TX-USA. This plant produces thousands of tons of metal alkyls, including aluminum, magnesium, boron and zinc alkyls which are used in the plastics and pharmaceutical industries. The plant has state-of-the-art chemical analysis equipment to ensure consistent high quality and purity products. Our transfilling of liquid MO-sources are according the semiconductor industry standards. This ensures that the purity of each manufactured batch is preserved as it is transfilled into smaller cylinders that are then shipped to and used by our customers.
Our global distribution network allows us to deliver products to you anywhere in the world, and includes regional warehouses on the US West coast, the Netherlands, Germany, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea and Japan. That's how we ensure security of supply and easy access to quality products wherever you are. All our sites are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Additionally, our La Porte manufacturing location is an OSHA VPP Star site.
Safety and technical support is mainly provided from our laboratories in Deventer, the Netherlands, and La Porte. Deventer is the site of Nouryon's fundamental metal alkyl research, development and innovation (RD&I). Our Safety Research laboratory in Deventer is heavily involved in RD&I, ensuring the development of safe products and processes.
