GFS Chemicals Introduces New High Purity Acid Product Line

GFS Chemicals Adds New High Purity Acid Product Line for Trace Metal Analysis


COLUMBUS, OH | August, 2021 – Building on its long history in the high purity acid business, GFS Chemicals today introduces a new line of high purity acids for trace metal analysis across an array of industries. This line of super pure acids is manufactured to rigorous standards to support analytical methodologies used in the detection of trace metal contaminates at the parts-per-trillion and parts-per-billion levels. This new line of high purity acids was made possible by GFS’ investment in a completely new facility including new distillation equipment, people, and a Class 100 clean room to enable the company to monitor and operate 24/7 continuous flow production.

“As the manufacturer of the Veritas line of high purity acids, GFS has control over the process from beginning to end. It ensures that the product our customers buy has the highest quality and longest shelf life possible,” said President and CEO J. Steel Hutchinson. “This investment places GFS as a leading manufacturer of high purity acid in North America.”

GFS expects to serve industries such as pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, food, biotech, environmental and others with its new product line. To help ensure the highest quality and reproducibility, GFS has also invested in a Thermo Fisher Element 2 HR ICP MS which provides class-leading elimination of interferences and reliable multi-element analyses at trace-level concentrations.

Added Hutchinson, “GFS is again demonstrating its market leadership in high purity acids just as it did in the 1960s when we developed a high purity distillation and trace metal Perchloric acid for the U.S. space program,” he said. “Our products will be used in testing leading-edge technology in any number of industries.”
