Chlorosilanes are chemical compounds made by reacting silicon powder and methyl chloride (CH3CI) gas through direct synthesis. The methyl chlorosilanes that are manufactured (trimethyl, dimethyl and methyl chlorosilane) act as the building blocks for many silicone substances. Chlorosilanes are a group of reactive chemical compounds containing chlorine that are related to silane and are used in many chemical processes. Each such chemical includes at least one silicon-chlorine bond. Trichlorosilane is produced on the largest scale.
Silicon tetrachloride and trichlorosilane work as intermediates in the manufacturing of ultrapure silicon in the semiconductor industry. Chlorosilanes derived from crude silicon are cleaned by fractional distillation techniques followed by reducing with hydrogen to give a silicon of 99.99% purity. Organic chlorosilanes are used as coatings for silicon and glass surfaces and in the manufacturing of silicone (polysiloxane) polymers too.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Purified Chlorosilanes production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
