Gas & Solvents Business
AGC Chemicals' portofolio includes coolants used in the air conditioning and refrigeration fields, as well as solvents used in the industrial cleaners and coatings fields. By offering products that address environmental problems such as ozone destruction and global warming, we are contributing to the creation of an ecological world.
- Introducing our Gas & Solvents products to reduce environmental impact
- Fluorinated refrigerant gas and solvents are widely used as materials that can be used safely with less toxicity and flammability in the refrigeration and solvents field. AGC Chemicals has developed and provided all kinds of chlorofluorocarbon alternatives that address the earth's problems such as ozone destruction and global warming. Using the knowledge we have gained thus far, we are proceeding with the development of refrigerant gas and solvents with a low Global Warming Potential as HFCs alternatives.
- Our full solvent lineup can meet a broad range of applications for our customers
- With the concept of “non-flammable and safe solvents”, we offer chlorinated solvents suitable for degreasing of metal products with high solubility, fluorinated solvents that are used in precision cleaning, other types of solvents and heat transfer medium with high thermal stability. With our technical support matched to our customer’s uses, we provide suitable solutions for each customer.
- Promoting recovery and recycling of fluorocarbons and calcium fluoride
- Calcium fluoride (fluorite), a raw material in fluoride products, is a valuable resource that has limited producing countries and reserves. From 1997, our company has been re-using it efficiently as a raw material by decomposing and recycling from the used fluorocarbons by our customers. Moreover, we have begun to re-use the calcium fluoride created in our own factories and in our customers’ waste water treatment processes that use hydrofluoric acid. In 2014, this approach earned us the “Minister Prize of Economic, Trade and Industry”, the highest award in the “Awards for Resource-Recycling Technologies and Systems” in Japan.
