Business Segments Description


We are a leading global manufacturer and marketer of a broad range of polyurethane chemicals, including MDI products, PO, polyols, PG and TPU (each discussed in more detail below under "—Products and Markets"). Polyurethane chemicals are used to produce rigid and flexible foams, as well as coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers. We focus on the higher-margin, higher-growth markets for specialty MDI and MDI-based polyurethane systems. Growth in our Polyurethanes segment has been driven primarily by the continued substitution of MDI-based products for other materials across a broad range of applications. We operate five primary polyurethane manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Europe and China. We also operate 19 strategically located downstream polyurethane formulation facilities, commonly referred to in the chemical industry as "systems houses," located in close proximity to our customers worldwide (see facilities listed in "—Item 2. Properties" below), which enables us to focus on customer support, technical service and a differentiated product offering. We also operate a specialty polyol manufacturing facility focused on the insulation market and three downstream TPU manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Europe and China.

Our customers produce polyurethane products through the combination of an isocyanate, such as MDI, with polyols, which are derived largely from PO and EO. We are able to produce over 2,000 distinct MDI-based polyurethane products by modifying the MDI molecule through varying the proportion and type of polyol used and by introducing other chemical additives to our MDI formulations. As a result, polyurethane products, especially those derived from MDI, are continuing to replace traditional products in a wide range of end-use markets, including insulation in construction and appliances, cushioning for automotive and furniture, coatings, adhesives, wood binders for construction and furniture, footwear and other specialized engineering applications.

Performance Products

Our Performance Products segment has leading global positions in the manufacture and sale of amines, surfactants and maleic anhydride and serves a wide variety of consumer and industrial end markets. Our Performance Products segment is organized by region and product family. Our product families are: Amines; Maleic Anhydride (including catalyst and licensing); Surfactants (including LAB); and Upstream Intermediates.

We produce a wide range of amines, many of which are sold into specialty markets such as epoxy curing agents, oil exploration and production, agrochemicals, and fuel and lubricant additives. We believe we are the largest global producer of polyetheramines, one of the largest producers of 2-(2-amino ethoxy) ethanol, sold under our DGA® brand, the second largest producer of ethyleneamines and morpholine and the second largest North American producer of ethanolamines. We are the only producer and largest supplier of propylene carbonate and ethylene carbonate in North America. Many of the markets for these products have growth rates in excess of global GDP.

We believe we are the largest global producer of maleic anhydride, a highly versatile chemical intermediate that is used to produce UPRs, which are mainly used in the production of fiberglass reinforced resins for marine, automotive and construction products. Maleic anhydride is also used in the production of lubricants, food additives and artificial sweeteners. We are also the leading licensor of maleic anhydride manufacturing technology and the largest supplier of butane fixed bed catalyst used in maleic anhydride manufacturing.

We consume internally produced and third-party-sourced base petrochemicals in the manufacture of our surfactants, LAB and ethanolamines products. We produce a broad range of surfactants, which are primarily used in detergency, personal care, agrochemical, oilfield and industrial applications. We manufacture LAB for use as an intermediate in laundry detergents and a higher molecular weight alkylate used as a lubricant additive.

We also use internally produced and third-party-sourced base petrochemicals to produce EG, which is primarily used in the production of polyester fibers, PET packaging and antifreeze.

Textile Effects

Our Textile Effects segment is a major global solutions provider in the wet processing of textiles across pretreatment, coloration, printing and finishing and provides a diverse portfolio of textile chemicals, dyes and digital inks. Our textile solutions provide color and enhance the fashion, durability and performance of finished textiles, including functionality such as wrinkle resistance and water and stain repellence. Our Textile Effects segment is characterized by the breadth of our product offering and long-standing relationships with our customers and downstream brands and retailers and OEMs (e.g., the automotive sector).

We market products to customers in multiple end-markets, including consumer fashion apparel, sportswear, career and uniform apparel, military, automotive, home and institutional textiles and furnishings, carpet and other functional textiles. Competition within these markets is generally fragmented with few competitors who can offer complete solutions for each market. We develop and adapt our technology and our applications expertise for new markets and new applications to improve our competitive offering. Increased environmental regulations, particularly in China, and consumer awareness about the environmental impact of the apparel industry has resulted in increased demand for sustainably produced textiles. We are at the forefront of developing sustainable textiles with advanced technology such as non-fluorinated durable water repellence, waterless dyeing and eco-friendly digital printing.
