Specialty Chemicals



  • Lithium Fluoride

    Lithium Fluoride, CAS 7789-24-4, has the formula LiF.  Lithium Fluoride is used as a constituent in welding fluxes, in fluxes for brazing of zirconium and titanium, as a rocket fuel suppressant, in the welding of magnesium castings, and as an ingredient in non-ferrous foundry fluxes.

  • Magnesium Fluoride

    Lithium Fluoride, CAS 7783-40-6, has the formula MgF2.  Magnesium Fluoride is used as a flux in the metalurgy of magnesium metal, as an additive in fluxes for porcelain and pottery, as a coating agent for titanium pigments, and as a phosphor in cathode ray screens.  In its pure form, it is used as an anti-glare agent in optical lens coatings.

  • Nickel Fluoride

    Nickel Fluoride, CAS 13940-83-5, has the formula NiF2.  Nickel Fluoride is used in metal plating operations, as a passivation layer on advanced nickel metals such as monel, in metal cold sealing applications, as a catalyst for the production of chlorine pentafluoride, in marking ink compositions for fluorescent lamps, as a transhalogenation catalyst for fluoroolefins, in the manufacture of varistors, as a catalyst for hydrofluorination, in the synthesis of xenon hexafluoride, and in the preparation of high purity elemental fluorine for research and chemical lasers.

  • Potassium Fluoride

    Potassium Fluoride, CAS 7789-23-3, has the formula KF.  Potassium Fluoride is used as a flux additive in metalurgy and silver solder, as a vehicle for introduction of fluorine in organic synthesis, as an additive in glass frosting products, in the manufacture of potassium metal, and in the heavy water industry.

  • Sodium Fluoride

    Sodium Fluoride, CAS 7681-49-4, has the formula NaF.  Sodium Fluoride is the primary used additive in the dental industry to fluoridate products such as fluoride treatments, toothpaste, and other fluoride containing products.  Sodium Fluoride can als be used as a flux additive in metalurgy and soldering products.

  • Sodium Fluoride (USP)

    Sodium Fluoride (USP), CAS 7681-49-4, has the formula NaF.  Sodium Fluoride USP is the primary used additive in the dental industry to fluoridate products such as fluoride treatments, toothpaste, Mouth-washer, and other fluoride containing products. It can also be used for water fluoridation, but Sodium Fluorosilicate or Fluorosilicic Acid is typically used in that application.  

  • Strontium Fluoride

    Strontium Fluoride, CAS 7783-48-4, has the formula SrF2.  Strontium Fluoride is primarly used as an optical coating material for a narrow range of highly specialized lens applications as well as a number of other high-tech applications.

  • Zinc Fluoride

    Zinc Fluoride, CAS 7783-49-5, has the formula ZnF2.  Zinc Fluoride is a widely used fluoride compound in a number of industries.  It is used in the fluorination of organic compounds, as an additive in electrolytic aluminum, and also in electroplating operations. It also has uses in food preservation, the manufacture of fluxes for metallurgy, oxygen sensitive applications for metal production, glass, enamels, fabrics and plastics as well as applications as a catalyst additive in oil refining, in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, phosphors for electric lights, and in the manufacture  of floor coverings.
