Market Innovation

We are committed to leveraging the power of chemistry in a way that makes this world better, safer and cleaner. It takes innovation. Innovation is a key to Responsible Chemistry. In new product development, we look beyond chemical make up toward application and end-use priorities.

Associates across the company focus on innovation, whether they are in Commercial or Research Development leadership roles, Hexion associates have a deep understanding of the technical requirements and insights for potential adhesive, coatings and composite solutions. But their expertise goes beyond that to understanding the needs of various stakeholders from supplier to regulator to end user – which is called lifecycle thinking. The benefits of lifecycle thinking in the context of product innovation are essential to ensure one “more sustainable” attribute is not achieved at the expense of another. 

Hexion implemented a Sustainability Impact Assessment for all new products we develop. New product approaches are evaluated at the concept stage based on sustainability criteria throughout the value chain from energy efficiency to societal benefits. Using this discipline, we better ensure new technologies and products improve on the life cycle impacts of existing products for a given application. In addition, Product Stewardship is involved in the early stages of new product development so that regulatory and safety considerations are integrated into the design and development process.
