Coronavirus Update

As we stand united in this challenging time, AGC is open and ready to support your materials needs. We are continuing to operate as a Life-Sustaining Business as outlined by Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Wolf, and all employees are following social distancing practices and CDC-recommended mitigation measures. At this time, we don’t anticipate any disruption to our ability to supply fluorochemicals and specialty materials. However, we will continue to closely monitor the situation as it continues to rapidly evolve.

Our top priorities remain:

  1. Protecting the health and safety of our employees and community.
  2. Ensuring our customer orders remain on a dependable schedule.
  3. Doing our part to stop the spread of the virus both locally and globally.

While we may be operating differently than normal, we remain committed to being a resource for our customers. Please continue to reach out virtually to our sales team and customer service representatives to ensure that your projects and supply chains keep moving forward.

AGC stands ready to help in the battle against the Coronavirus pandemic

AGC is ready to help medical equipment OEMs maintain their supply chains so they can meet our nation’s unprecedented demand for PPE and equipment to battle this ongoing pandemic. AGC currently has a ready supply of the following enhanced materials:

  • PTFE for seals, gaskets and other ventilator components
  • PFA, ETFE and other advanced materials for medical tubes, hoses and films
  • Water and oil repellents for disposable medical garments
  • FDA compliant elastomeric materials for critical seals and gaskets

In addition to delivering technologies used in ventilators and PPE, AGC materials are used as engine parts in the trucks, planes and other equipment used to transport, distribute and store medical supplies used by healthcare workers on the front line. We are also working to fast-track the development of an ETFE film with anti-microbial coatings. This film could be used to wrap the walls of mobile hospitals, helping to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
