Inorganic Technologies

Nearly 100 years of chemical and engineering experience have allowed GFS Chemicals to develop highly specialized and effective inorganic chemical manufacturing processes. Our customers leverage this expertise by working with us to identify products that meet their most critical and demanding requirements in terms of purity.


At GFS Chemicals, we don't "lot select" materials that we hope will work for our customers. Instead, we develop and engineer our manufacturing processes to ensure we produce chemicals that meet our customer's most stringent requirements every time, with batch-to-batch reproducibility. GFS Chemicals typically starts at ACS Reagent Grade in terms of the quality that we offer, and can manufacture higher purities as required.

Over time, chemicals have been gradually added to our core product portfolio which now spans the periodic table. These products are all based on our dedication to vertical integration. Controlling the raw materials results in supply chain security for the finished product. GFS stays committed to our true core inorganic chemical manufacturing technologies and capabilities in all of our offerings, which include:

  • Acid Base Chemistry
  • Distillation
  • Dry Room Packaging
  • Flexible Reactor Train Ranging from 30 - 3,000 Gallons
  • Heavy Metal Chemistry
  • Perchloric Acid HClO4 and Perchlorate Salt Production
  • Rare Earth Chemistry
  • Recrystallization Process
  • Tray and Rotary Vacuum Drying
