Products and markets

Acrylic polymers are additives used to improve the properties (Impact Modifiers) and processing (Process Aids) of a wide variety of plastic items. Impact Modifiers improve the impact resistance of PVC compounds used in pipe, siding, fencing, decking, windows, and trim. Process Aids improve the productivity, quality, and cost of producing these same products in addition to film, sheet, bottles, and packaging. The site also manufactures PEKK, a lightweight, high-performance thermoplastic used for aerospace or other demand applications. In addition to these chemistries, the plant operates and maintains two tin-based chemistry production units for PMC Organometallix.
