Manufacturing
» EC Number:
SAFC Hitech has manufactured BCl3 since 1993. During this time we have continued to
incorporate the latest technology in process equipment design and installed to yield an efficient and reliable plant that can run continuously. Built- 233-658-4
in redundancy and modular design ensure an uninterrupted supply of BCl3. » RTECS Number:
ED1925000
SAFC Hitech has a simple, direct way of manufacturing BCl3 from the constituent elements. This leads to an intrinsically pure product, which avoids
difficult to remove impurities by ensuring they are not present.

Our manufacturing expertise can provide high quality Boron trichloride for you.
