ACR products meet the exacting requirements demanded by chemists for analytical reagents. 

Prepared by chemists for chemists, and using carefully calibrated and precise production processes, our ready-made formulations are safely and conveniently packaged for use and reuse in calibration and analysis.

ACR products are manufactured in Australia, which means they are available when you need them. It also means we’re able to underpin the quality, consistency and reliability of our reagents with convenience and value.

The performance of our chemical reagents is documented at every stage to the highest standard. We provide certificates of analysis along with temperature calibration tables and guidance on the shelf life of each product to ensure we meet the needs of our customers.

ACR can trace its history back to the 1950s. The business built a leading reputation by its commitment to exact formulations and the consistency of its high-quality products that deliver trust and confidence in use. 

ACR became part of ChemSupply Australia in 2016 and is now a brand of CSA Scientific — a ChemSupply Australia business unit. It benefits from ChemSupply Australia’s size, financial strength, commitment to investment, and sophisticated, quality-accredited manufacturing processes.
