F2 Chemicals Ltd, an expert in fluorination
F2 Chemicals was established in 1992 and has vast experience in manufacturing high-purity, perfluorinated fluids. Their non-toxic and non-flammable products carry the trade name Flutec and are known for having excellent thermal stability, chemical inertness, electrical resistivity, and gas solubility.
The Flutec Fluids are used for example in electronics manufacturing, industrial cooling systems and medical applications, to name but a few applications. F2 Chemicals also has technology for selective direct fluorination, in particular to produce beta-fluoroketoesters and sulphurpentafluoride compounds.
Substances such as fluorination products must be REACH-compliant when they are marketed in Europe. This requires extensive resources and knowledge of European chemical regulations and is often time- and money-consuming for companies aiming for that specific market.
To comply with Article 8 of the REACH regulation 1907/2006, companies outside the EEA must also appoint a European Only Representative (OR) to carry out their EU REACH matters. An Only Representative entity will then have to carry out the registration procedures under REACH on behalf of the company they are representing.
As a European company, Chementors is fully qualified to act as an Only Representative for non-EEA companies according to the REACH regulation. As such, Chementors has acted as F2 Chemicals’ Only Representative since 2019 handling the company’s registration needs with care, including for example joint submission matters, tonnage updates, and all related authority communications.
“We are happy to rely on Chementors’ EU REACH expertise acting as our Only Representative in the European Fluorination market, as this lets us focus on our European trade while knowing all our REACH compliance matters are taken care of.” Says Andy Joel of F2 Chemicals Ltd.
Both Chementors and F2 Chemicals are looking forward to continuing the fruitful cooperation in the years to come making the European fluorination market safe and REACH-compliant. The cooperating companies also follow together the future development of PFAS chemicals in the EU.
