The Fluorinated Solvents of the Future
AGC Chemicals Europe markets and sells a range of fluorinated solvents throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The commercial centre is located in Amsterdam, Netherlands, where the dedicated product and marketing managers and European customer service team are located.
The fluorinated solvents range manufactured in Japan by AGC Inc. was designed to replace halogenated solvents and to address environmental problems such as ozone depletion and global warming.
AGC offers non-flammable and safer solvents as well as solvent-based blends, which are used as a carrier for silicone and fluorinated lubricants, as heat transfer fluids and as moisture displacement fluids. Other applications include degreasing of metal products, precision cleaning and defluxing of electronic circuitry.
Solvents from AGC have no flashpoint and therefore explosion-proof equipment is not required where they are in use.
AGC also manufactures fluorinated surface coating agents, which are used for their anti-fouling and mould release properties.
