American Chemical Technologies, Inc. (ACT) has served the primary metals industry since its founding in 1977. We started as a supplier of industrial greases and heavy gear compounds to the industry, but in the mid-1980’s we invested in the development and commercialization of a line of fire retardant water glycol hydraulic fluids to meet the needs of the steel, aluminum, and die cast/foundry industries.
Fire Resistant PAGs – When the industry challenged us to address unsolved issues, we responded with game-changing polyalkylene glycol (PAG) fluid technology that has gained widespread acceptance and stood the test of time. EcoSafe® FR PAG-based fluid has become the industry standard for high performance. End-users put EcoSafe® FR to the test from the start, challenging it to perform in applications where other lubricants had failed. In each instance, EcoSafe® FR met the test, leading to broader adoption of this innovative PAG-based technology. Our in-depth knowledge of end-user needs has led to further innovation and today ACT offers a wide range of solutions for primary metals applications.
