Hydrogen fluoride

Hydrogen fluoride is the first product in the refinement of fluorspar (Fluorite, CaF2), the ore from which synthetic fluorides are created industrially. Though a highly toxic and corrosive gas, HF is incredibly important as a feedstock chemical for a variety of applications. At Cheshire Organics, HF is frequently used for a range of transformations. We have all the expertise and equipment to use HF safely and effectively, whilst minimising risk and environmental impact. As a group company of Navin Fluorine International, we are one of the biggest HF producers in India.

HF is often used in vapour phase fluorinations, such as the examples shown below.
