Our History

Astro was founded in 1959 to serve the emerging demand for chemistries tailored to specific customer-driven applications that off-the-shelf products could not fulfill.  Our first products were developed as OEM-specified materials for high voltage applications in industrial motors and utility scale steam turbine and hydro turbine generators.  Over time Astro products found their way into applications in the energy storage, electronics, electrical components markets, carbon fiber and fiberglass composites markets, and have been widely adopted for use in general industrial manufacturing and repair applications.

Today, Astro Chemical is a leader in the development and manufacture of highly formulated, specialized epoxy and related chemistries for use as coatings, adhesives, saturants, and encapsulation compounds; used across a wide variety of industrial manufacturing and service markets.  Our product offering ranges from high temperature adhesives where structural and mechanical properties are critical, to high voltage materials requiring specific electrically insulating or conductive properties, high thermal rating, as well as mechanical and adhesive performance at high temperature.  

We address our customer needs via a database of over 1,000 formulations, or via a new product development process.  Our Product Development Lab has extensive capabilities in new product formulation and in-house material qualification testing to develop products that meet or exceed our customer’s unique application and performance specification needs.  Our flexible manufacturing facility ensures we are able to produce and stock our products for worldwide expedited shipment to fulfill our customers’ material demands.

Astro continues to grow in a controlled manner, building a portfolio of complementary product lines.  We are committed to improving the performance of our products with an eye to anticipate industry trends and to meet the regulatory demands and environmental challenges of today’s rapidly evolving manufacturing economy.
