Delivering clear benefits for everyone

 

A rapid shift to more responsible coatings is being driven by the imperative to clean the air we breathe.

Hexion is leading the way, with technologies that can help reduce emissions from paints and coatings as they cure.

We are a global leader in waterborne epoxy systems for metal and concrete coatings. Our waterborne epoxy systems maintain very low VOCs without sacrificing performance. Additionally, our Versatic™ Acid derivatives are key building blocks that can help make the manufacturing of water-based paints and coatings easier and cost effective.

Of course, a project as big as clearing the air requires partnership. And Hexion is proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with coatings manufacturers around the world, developing solutions built on shared vision and core values.

 

Less solvent, less smog

For decades, Hexion chemists have been helping customers formulate high-performance waterborne coatings with significantly lower solvent content.

Solvent-based
Water-based
When solvent-based paints cure, harmful VOC-releasing solvents evaporate into the atmosphere, resulting in decreased air quality.
Water-based paints don’t use the same solvents to cure. This helps keep our air clean, without sacrificing performance.

A holistic approach

Our relationship with constituents across the entire supply chain, as well as our 50 years of formulating expertise, has helped us to develop end-to-end waterborne solutions.

 
 

Global reach, local touch

We are committed to meeting increasing demand for waterborne technologies,
particularly in China, with enhanced capacity, formulating support and R&D.

Solvent-based

When solvent-based paints cure, harmful VOC-releasing solvents evaporate into the atmosphere, with a negative, toxic impact on the environment.

Coatings
Water-based

With water-based paints, the only thing that evaporates is water. This results in paints that are eco-friendly, that don’t sacrifice performance.
