AGC Chemicals Americas is a wholly owned subsidiary of AGC Inc., a $13.6 billion multinational corporation and one of the world's largest manufacturers of glass, electronic displays and chemical products. Our company was formed in 2004 through the merging of sister companies Asahi Glass Fluoropolymers USA and AGA Chemicals. Headquartered in Exton, Pa. including a state of the art technology center, AGCCA maintains manufacturing operations in nearby Thorndale, PA, a satellite sales office in Sao Paulo, Brazil and warehouses and distributors located throughout North America.
Our company manufactures, markets and sells fluoroproducts including Fluon® fluoropolymer resins, Fluon+™ enhanced fluorinated materials and compounds and AFLAS® fluoroelastomers. We also market and sell specialty chemicals including AsahiKlin fluorinated solvents, LUMIFLON® FEVE resins, AsahiGuard E-SERIES water and oil repellants, Solesphere™ fine silica additives, polyols for polyurethanes, Cytop™ amorphous fluoropolymers and various fluoro intermediates for pharma and agro products. Specialty materials offered are FORBLUE™ ion exchange membranes, Fluon® ETFE film and F-CLEAN® greenhouse films completing our wide array of product offerings for many uses and markets.
Our corporate vision, “Your Dreams, Our Challenge" embodies our mission to become the preferred global fluorochemical materials solutions provider. Working with others to combine knowledge and advanced technology, we create unique materials, solutions and reliable partnerships that help make ever greater achievements possible, and bring bolder ideas to life.
LUMIFLON CORROSION RESISTANCE
A LUMIFLON-based coating:
- Resists degradation due to weathering and exposure to ambient chemicals
- Over the course of many years, loses little of its thickness
- Keeps corrosion initiators from getting past the topcoat and degrading the zinc-rich primer underneath
- Has an estimated coating life of 60 years or more
Because LUMIFLON-based coatings offer crisp, clean colors and a wide range of glosses, designers and builders choose them to achieve a superior look from day one. And with LUMIFLON's ability to resist UV degradation, corrosion, and the ill-effects of chemical exposure, projects using LUMIFLON continue looking good for years to come with little or no maintenance required. That means markedly less fading, discoloration or chalking for the life of the coating - which is estimated at up to 60 years!
- Ambient or elevated temperature cure - field or shop applied coatings
- Solvent soluble - clean crisp colors and a wide gloss range
- Versatile - solvent grade, solid, water based and powder coating resins offered
- OH functional - polyurethane chemistry, use standard paint equipment
- Fluoropolymer segments-ultra-weatherable and corrosion resistant
- Longer life cycle - up to 60 years
