About Lorad Chemical Corporation
Lorad Chemical Corporation is a global leader in the development and manufacture of complex inorganic materials for advanced technology applications.
The story of Lorad begins over two decades ago with the dream of our founder, Alan Saunders, to establish a materials science company focused on turning cutting-edge research and innovation into commercial-scale production. From our inception to the current day, Lorad has been relentlessly focused on being the best at what we do—researching, developing, and producing new inorganic chemicals and improving existing processes to make our catalog of chemicals even better and more cost-effective for our customers. Today, we serve customers in over 50 countries in diverse industries including aerospace, automotive, advanced batteries, optics and electro-optics, semiconductor, pigments, catalysts, and advanced ceramics.
Lorad's mission is:
"To make the world a better place by pushing the boundaries of materials science in support of our customer's applications."
To advance our mission, Lorad focuses on custom synthesis and the development of innovative and cost-effective routes for the batch synthesis of complex inorganic oxides, sulfides, fluorides and high purity salts. We employ a team of scientists, engineers, and technicians that have a broad range of manufacturing and product development experience that enable us to stay at the forefront of technical advances in the field of materials science.
Because we are manufacturers, not resellers——this allows us to offer more options and the best price.
Our products are found in applications such as:
- Lithium/Ion Batteries, Thermal Batteries, and Fuel Cells
- Advanced Coatings for Thermal and Wear Management
- Electro-ceramic & Electro-conductive Powders
- Phosphors for Security Applications, Radiation Detection, Imaging Screens and special phosphors for LED light conversion.
- High Purity Materials for Thin Film Coatings, Fiber Optics, Crystal Growth
- Nano-materials for a wide range of applications
