Specialty Chemicals and Materials
AGC develops and manufactures a variety of resins, liquids or films based on fluorochemical technology. These materials include fluorinated resins, fluorinated water and oil repellents, fluoropolymer films, fluorinated gases and solvents, fine silica and polyurethanes.
AGC’s specialty materials enhance the properties of products such as paints, pharmaceuticals, architectural facades and cosmetics. Each AGC material offers its own unique characteristics, but most are extremely durable and resistant to:
The first solvent-soluble fluoropolymer resin for coatings that can be cured at room temperature or at elevated temperatures.
Fluorinated water/oil repellents that contain no PFOA (at or above detection limits), longer chain PFCs or their precursors.
These solvents/cleaning agents were designed to replace halogenated solvents that are harmful to the environment.
An ion exchange membrane used in electrolysis plants that enables substantial energy savings.
