Value Through Materials Science

We develop, manufacture, license, and support industry-leading technologies through our Catalysts Technologies and Materials Technologies business segments. Our legacy materials science is built on silica, but today this extends into synergistic technologies in organic and inorganic chemistries. These synergies give us operational and technological advantages and, along with our deep applications expertise and technical service, allowed us to develop long-term customer relationships and a track record of innovation.
