Lighting Gases

Linde is the world's largest manufacturer of halogen, hydride, rare gas mixtures and radioactive Krypton-85 lighting gas mixtures for incandescent, fluorescent, and high intensity discharge (HID) lamps in a full range of cylinder sizes and volumes.

Quality, consistency, and purity are always incorporated throughout Linde Gases' production and laboratory facilities during the creation of each multi-component gas mixture.

The components of any lighting gas mixture are dependent on the specific lighting application. Halogen and hydride gas mixtures are usually multi-component gas mixtures with either an inert and/or rare gas as the second or third component within the gas mixture or as the balance gas itself.

Below you will find a list of typical lighting gas mixtures. Linde Gases manufacturers over 1000 different lighting gas mixtures with various combinations of gas components and levels of concentrations.

If you have and inquiry regarding specific lighting gas mixtures please contact us.  You may also download our complete Gas Mixtures catalog.

Multi-Component Lighting Gas Mixtures

  • Bromodichloromethane (CHCL2BR)

  • Dibromomethane (CH2BR2)

  • Hydrogen bromide (HBR)

  • Methylbromide (CH3BR)

  • Methyliodide (CH3I)

  • other halogens

  • Hydrides: Silane (SiH4) and Phosphine (PH3)

Cylinder Volume: Linde Gases can provide lighting gas mixtures in cylinder volumes as low as twenty (20) liters and as high as 10,000 liters per cylinder. Please note that any gaseous cylinder volume is dependent on the gases within the mixtures.

Cylinder Valves: Linde Gases can provide cylinder with either CGA, DIN, JIS or BS cylinder valve connections (country dependent).

Cylinders: Linde Gases can provide lighting gas mixtures in either steel, aluminum or non-refillable gas cylinders.

Other Halogens

  • Hydrides: Silane (SiH4)
  • Phosphine (PH3)

Pure Gases

Linde is the primary gas manufacturer and supplier of rare gases as well as halogen and hydride gas mixtures to light bulb manufacturers worldwide.

Our expertise in the purification and analysis of each gas component within the lighting gas mixture assures the light bulb manufacturer of the highest quality gas being used for each and every light bulb.

The lighting formulas innovated by Linde guard against impurities that are harmful to light bulbs.  These harmful impurities include:

  • Carbon Monoxide

  • Freons

  • Hydrocarbons

  • Hydrogen

  • Moisture

  • Oxygen

Below are the pure gases that Linde manufactures and supplies worldwide for the lighting industry. If you have an inquiry regarding any lighting pure gas component, please contact us. You may also download our complete Pure Gases catalog .
