Applied Chemicals

Since the start of our founding business of selling soda products, our products have been widely used as basic materials in many industries. Fluorine compounds continue to be developed to meet the needs of our age, and their main raw material, an inorganic industrial chemical called hydrofluoric acid has become a vital product for the advance of industry. It is also the basis of various newly developed compound products at Central Glass. The CELEFIN® series (a coverall term for Central Glass’ HFO products), are a line of next-generation products born from the fusion of chlorination, fluorination, and mass-production technologies we have nurtured since our founding. In particular, they are both considerate of the global environment and help people to live in comfort.

  • HFO-1233zd(E)

    A next-generation low-GWP fluorine-based blowing agent for which we were the first in the world to develop commercial production technology. This material is an environmentally friendly product that is not classified as an ozone-depleting substance and has a low GWP (GWP=3.88*). *IPCC Sixth Assessment Report (2021)

  • CELEFIN ® 1233Z (HFO-1233zd(Z))

    A next-generation fluorine-based solvent that combines excellent environmental performance (ODP≈0, GWP<1) with high cleaning performance. An ideal product to replace HCFC-225 and other chlorinated, brominated, and hydrocarbon solvents.

  • ZEM-SCREEN®(HFO-1234ze(E))

    We have applied fluorine technology to provide environmentally friendly cover gas for magnesium alloy production. An environmentally friendly product with low GWP, etc.

  • HFC-245fa

    As an alternative fluorocarbon that does not destroy the ozone layer, HFC-245fa is used as a blowing agent in rigid urethane foam for heat insulation materials.

  • Hydrofluoric acid (anhydrous/diluted products)

    Utilizing the unique properties of fluorine, various fluorine compounds play an active role in our daily lives. The product used as a starting material for these fluorine compound products is hydrofluoric acid.

  • Aromatic Products

    Central Glass handles a wide range of aromatic compounds having trifluoromethyl groups that are produced commercial quantities using hydrogen fluoride (HF) and the halogen exchange method. These products are used in many fields not only as cleaning solvents and lubricants, but also as pharmaceutical and agrochemical intermediates.

  • Aliphatic Products

    Aliphatic compounds such as Hexafluoroisopropanol (HFIP) derived from Hexafluoroacetone (HFA) are used as pharmaceutical and agrochemical intermediates and in electronic materials. Central Glass has the manufacturing capacity to meet the needs of our customers with dependable supplies of high-quality products.

  • Trifluoromethanesulfonic acid (Triflic acid), derivatives

    The Central Glass Group manufactures trifluoromethanesulfonic acid (Triflic acid) at a commercial plant. We have a comprehensive lineup of Triflate derivatives and Trilate salts, including Trifluoromethanesulfonic anhydride (Triflicanhydride) and Lithium Trifluoromethanesulfonate.

  • Aromatic monomers

    Central Glass manufactures BIS-AF [CAS No. 1478-61-1], which is used as a cross-linking agent for rubber and a resin raw material. We also have a competitive edge in various derivatives and similar compounds derived from it. By using the aforementioned monomers, functions such as heat resistance specific to fluorine-containing compounds can be added. It has a proven track record of being used as a polymer raw material for various semiconductor materials, and we have established a high-quality product management system.

  • Reagents

    We supply customers around the world with a wide range of unique reagents with the research and development function and procurement capabilities of members of the Central Glass Group, SynQuest Laboratories, Inc. in the US and Apollo Scientific Limited in the UK.
