We have supplied AP for use in aerospace, national defense programs and commercial applications for more than 50 years. We have been the exclusive manufacturer of AP in North America since 1998, when we acquired the AP business of Kerr-McGee Chemical Corporation.
AP is the leading oxidizing agent for solid propellant rockets, booster motors and missiles that are used in space exploration, commercial satellite transportation and national defense programs. A significant number of existing and planned space launch vehicles use a solid propellant and thus depend, at least in part, upon our AP.
The perchlorate business is the anchor operation of American Pacific's Production Facility. This facility is ISO 9001-2008, ISO 14001:2004, and OHSAS 18001:2007 certified.
