About Us

Fred BaconFrederick S. Bacon Laboratories was established two years before the outbreak of World War II.  Through its services to industry and the military over the ensuing years, an enviable position among professional service organizations was attained. After the cessation of World War II, Frederick S. Bacon Laboratories solved a difficult specialty rubber molding problem for a vital U. S. Air Force application.  Such a stream of orders for precision production work followed that it was decided to establish a wholly owned industrial service affiliate – Bacon Industries, Inc. What started out as a one‑man operation is today an exceptionally flexible‑minded staff of scientists, engineers and technically trained assistants, equipped with extensive, fully modern research and development facilities.

Located in Irvine, California, Bacon Industries specializes in the field of adhesives, bonding, potting, impregnating, sealing and coating systems. Our chemists and engineers supply valuable recommendations in the selection of the correct system, the ideal packaging, establishing procedures, and proper production control methods. Decades of manufacturing high quality resin systems as well as our ISO 9001/AS9100 certification qualifies us to provide valuable counsel in the selection and application of adhesives and other resin based systems.
