Global Nitrogen Trifluoride Market Major Players:
Some of the major players in the Global Nitrogen Trifluoride Market are as: Huntsman Corporation, Kanto Denka Kogyo, Solvay Chemicals, BASF SE, Central Glass Co. Ltd., The Dow Chemical Company, Eastman Chemical Company, Rhodia Chemicals, Akzo Nobel N.V., Air Products and Chemicals, Inc., American Gas Group, Mitsui Chemicals, Inc., Anderson Development Company, Ulsan Chemical Company Limited and Ashland among others.

Nitrogen Trifluoride is an inorganic compound which is used as an etchant in microelectronics. It is chemically known as NF3. It is a colorless, odorless, nonflammable, and oxidized compressed gas. It is Very toxic by inhalation, slightly soluble in water. Under prolonged exposure to fire or heat the containers may rupture violently and it is also used to make other chemicals and components of rocket fuels. It is 2.5 times heavier than air and will tend to settle in low-lying areas. Nitrogen Trifluoride is a stable chemical. It is safe to transport and store. At high temperatures, nitrogen Trifluoride becomes less stable. It will split into fluorine radicals that react with most materials.
