About Us

(Round Rock, Texas)

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 held over 25 U.S. patents covering its fluorination process and many of its fluorinated products.

Today with our facility located in Round Rock, Texas (pictured above), 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.

Our Technology: 

Exfluor's patented process uses fluorine gas to convert hydrocarbons to fluorocarbons while keeping the carbon-carbon backbone of the molecule intact. This allows us to offer unique and innovative compounds at scale. 

Custom Synthesis: 

If you are looking for high purity fluorocarbons that we do not currently offer, our staff of chemists and engineers are eager to work with you. Our Unique approach of direct fluorination allows us to provide a wide variety of products. No matter how large or small your requirements may be, we can manufacture your product, quality assured. Our staff is committed to delivering a quality product to the customer on time and on-budget, within the framework of your specific regulatory requirements.
