MEETING THE CHALLENGES OF “DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH” HYDRIDES


While hydrogen is the most abundant chemical substance in the universe, it doesn’t become useful to industry until combined with another element. That process can cause hydrides to react violently with air and be easily oxidized and also be corrosive and flammable. Materion’s chemical experts have constrained these threats to produce hydride compounds meeting your exact specifications.

HYDRIDE COMPOUNDS USED IN MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS

There are a range of technical applications for hydrides particularly for thin film deposition. They can be found in industries that use some of the following:

  • Reducing and drying agents
  • Thin film coatings for optics and electronic sensors
  • Base compound for chemical synthesis
  • Storage battery technologies
  • Fuel cell-powered electric cars
  • Bleaching agents
