Huntsman announces specialty amines expansion project

By Mary Page Bailey |

Huntsman Corp. (The Woodlands, Tex.) announced that its Performance Products division has completed the initial phases of a project to expand and widen its portfolio of E-GRADE specialty amines, including quaternary amine alternatives to tetramethylammonium hydroxide (TMAH) and related products at its Conroe, Texas facility. The new facility is expected to be completed and operational in 2023. E-GRADE specialty amines are a family of products used by the electronics industry to enhance the performance of semiconductor manufacturing. These specialty products improve the production of semiconductor chips and the many downstream applications on which they rely.

The expansion would complement Huntsman’s integrated amines focus by adding purification, blending, and cleanroom packaging to support semiconductor industry needs, while also providing greater supply security and product consistency and quality.

“This expansion would leverage our expertise as one of the world’s leading semiconductor-grade amine suppliers to improve customer experience, meet stringent quality expectations, and offer a greater range of products to the growing and dynamic semiconductor industry. This project also would satisfy many of our customers’ requests to have a North American supply source for these vitally needed products,” said Chuck Hirsch, Sr. Vice President, Huntsman Performance Products.
