Primary Manufacturer of Magnesium Perchlorate

GFS Chemicals is a primary and global manufacturer of magnesium perchlorate.

GFS is a primary domestic manufacturer of magnesium perchlorate, also known affectionately around the company as "Magy."

GFS has been manufacturing magnesium perchlorate since the 1920's at its production facility in Columbus, Ohio.  In fact, you could say that GFS Chemicals wrote the book (or at least the article!) on its application as a dessicant1. We have a state of the art dry room complete with oven capacity dedicated to the drying and packaging of this material.


Magy is available in gram through metric ton quantities.  We also offer our anhydrous material in different mesh sizes to fit your application.
