SK materials Inc. is constantly pursuing innovation to making a leap forward as a 'Global Top material technology company' leading the advanced materials industry.

SK materials has grown into a Global No.1 company in the field of special gases such as tungsten hexafluoride(WF6), monosilane(SiH4), and disilane(Si2H6) since 2001 when it succeeded in localizing nitrogen trifluoride(NF3) for the first time in Korea, which was in a barren state for special gases for advanced IT materials. Since 2016, SK materials has achieved rapid growth, expanding its material business portfolio across the entire semiconductor process, including industrial gases, precursors, etching gases, and photoresists, through active M&A and collaborations (JV) with global technology companies.

Based on the world-class product production and quality management capabilities secured through its semiconductor material business, SK materials is also actively entering the battery, display, and environmentally friendly materials fields. In particular, in 2023, it plans to start mass production of Si-C anode material, which will dramatically increase the driving distance and charging speed of EVs as the next-generation battery material. SK materials will achieve another leap forward by securing a portfolio of various core battery materials in the future.

SK materials is leading ESG management in the global material technology industry. It is actively engaged in the global response to the climate crisis and plans to achieve RE100/NetZero in 2030 for the first time in the domestic materials industry.
