Who are we?

LBN team is made up of chemists and chemical engineers who have developed and successfully commercialized several patented copper surface preparation formulations/processes in thin film tech device fabrication such as Semiconductor and Solar cell fabrication.

Our Mission

Our mission is to research, develop and commercialize thin-film metal surface treatment technologies.


Formulation chemistry and surface treatment chemistry built on over 100 years of industrial experience in thin film technology including Semiconductor, LCD, Solar and PCB fabrication.


Over the last 25 years, the team members have invented and launched many commercially successful surface cleaning and preparation products. Over $1B worth of patented products invented by the staff has been sold to many of the world's largest IC fabrication corporations.  Team members have previously succeeded in introducing and commercializing the use of concentrated formulations that are diluted at the point of use for certain semiconductor fabrication cleaning steps.  This approach has opened up the third dimension in surface preparation technology, allowing customers to further optimize cleaning process performance, while significantly reducing the cost of ownership of the process.  In addition, LBN, Inc. team members have extensive experience in corrosion inhibition technology in aqueous solutions and the commercialization of surface cleaning and preparation products with multiple applications.

Customer Service

We have been successful because we offer superior customer service.  We have met the challenge of satisfying the most demanding customers in Japan, Europe, and the United States.  The true test of the quality of customer service is determined by how well a supplier responds to customer issues.  We understand the need to offer our busy customers a seamless process for evaluating, qualifying, and using a new product in their process.  We recognize how valuable our customers' time is, especially those operating production lines 24/7, where hundreds of process steps must take place to produce a finished product.  We strive to meet and exceed customer expectations and we know that customer loyalty is the only way to ensure long-term business success.

Our Commitment to the Environment

  • Use environmentally friendly components whenever possible and practical

  • Assist our customers in the proper use of our products to minimize chemical use and waste generation

  • Develop aqueous, concentrated formulations that can be diluted with water at the point of use, enabling our customers to further reduce the overall volume of chemicals used in cleaning applications
