About Exfluor



Exfluor Research Corporation began in 1984 with the purpose of developing a commercially viable method for conversion of hydrocarbons to fluorocarbons using elemental fluorine. In the 1980s, Exfluor concentrated its efforts on contract research mainly for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the United States Air Force developing specialty space lubricants, nonflammable hydraulic fluids, and specialty coatings. Our unique method of direct fluorination propelled us to make a transition in the early 1990s from doing strictly research to manufacturing specialty fluorinated chemicals. Exfluor currently has over 25 U.S. patents covering its fluorination process and many of the fluorinated products.

Today, you can find our products and technology on everything from satellites to televisions. Our patented process allows us to manufacture unique structures in gram to multi-ton quantities. Exfluor Research Corporation is dedicated to customer satisfaction and in developing new kinds of products tailor-made to meet our customer's requirements. We welcome all custom synthesis requests for large or small quantities.




Fluorination Technology


Fluorination Diagram

Exfluor's patented process uses fluorine gas to convert hydrocarbons to fluorocarbons while keeping the carbon-carbon backbone of the molecule intact.
