GFL - Fluorospeciality-Chemicals

GFL is a leading producer of industrial chemicals used in varied applications. The chemicals business segment of GFL focuses on capacity utilisation and cost-efficiencies of the raw materials, namely, salt, methanol and power and produces commodity chemicals such as Caustic Soda Lye, Methylene Chloride, Hydrogen Gas, AHCL, HCL and H2SO4.

Caustic Soda (Sodium hydroxide)

  • CAS No : 1310-73-2

Caustic soda is a versatile alkali with main uses in the manufacture of pulp and paper, alumina, soap and detergents, petroleum products and chemical production.

Carbon Tetrachloride

  • CAS No : 56-23-5

Carbon tetrachloride has been used in the carbon tetrachloride induced mouse model to study liver injury and regeneration.

Chlorine

  • CAS No : 7782-50-5

Chlorine gas has been used to generate chlorine atoms via photolysis for molecular halogen photochemical experiments. It can be used as a reactant for the extraction of gold from an alluvial material via a pyrometallurgical process and to synthesize carbide-derived carbons (CDC) from zirconium carbide.

Methylene Di Chloride

  • CAS No : 75-09-2

Methylene Dichloride is an important intermediate, used with other intermediate to manufacture quality products.

Hydrochloric Acid

  • CAS No : 7647-01-0

Hydrochloric acid is an important chemical reagent and industrial chemical, used in the production of polyvinyl chloride for plastic. In households, diluted hydrochloric acid is often used as a descaling agent. In the food industry, hydrochloric acid is used as a food additive and in the production of gelatin. Hydrochloric acid is also used in leather processing.

Sodium Hydrogen Sulphate

  • CAS No : 10034-88-5

Sodium bisulfate is used primarily to lower pH. it also is used in metal finishing, cleaning products, and to lower the pH of water for effective chlorination in swimming pools and hot tubs.

Hydrogen Gas

  • CAS No : 1333-74-0

Hydrogen is used in various in industrial applications; these include metalworking, flat glass production , the electronics industry and applications in electricity generation, for example for generator cooling or for corrosion prevention in power plant pipelines.

Fluorspar (Calclium Fluoride)

  • CAS No : 7789-75-5

Fluorspar has multiple applications in fiberglass, ceramic, welding rod, and glass industry. Also used in blending with burned lime & dolomite for the steel industry.

CHLOROFORM

  • CAS No : 67-66-3

Chloroform is majorly used as a solvent in lacquers, floor polishes, resins, adhesives, alkaloids, fats, oils, and rubber as well as used in paper & board industries, pesticide & film production and Fluorocarbon 22 (refrigerant) manufacturing.
