Pioneering Solutions in Fluorochemicals
Halocarbon Products is one of the world's leading producers of specialty fluorochemicals. Halocarbon's products include aliphatic fluorochemicals for pharmaceutical and agricultural chemical manufacturing, inhalation anesthetics for the human and veterinary markets, inert lubricants and other specialty products. Halocarbon is headquartered in River Edge, New Jersey, and its state-of-the-art manufacturing plant is in North Augusta, South Carolina, USA.
While Halocarbon started out in 1950 making inert lubricants based on polychlorotrifluoroethylene, our beginnings are traced to the 1940s, when founder Robert Ehrenfeld, a Cornell graduate and emerging fluorine chemist at the time, was part of the team that developed fluorine-based lubricants for the Manhattan Project during World War II. When the war ended, the government still needed a supplier of these important compounds, so, with help from some government grants, Ehrenfeld and a few colleagues started Halocarbon in a garage. Those inert lubricants are still manufactured today in addition to our other product lines.
