Designing materials for the future

Lighter cars. Stronger buildings. Safer packaging. Higher performance.

We have always lived in a material world and it’s the composite, adhesive and rubber technologies from Ashland Performance Materials that are helping to develop the materials of the future. 

For years, leading automobile and truck manufacturers have searched for new ways to improve the eco-friendliness, safety and fuel-efficiency of automobiles, trucks and other transportation. Traditional heavy and labor-intensive materials like steel don’t contribute much to this goal. Our resins and structural adhesives provide alternative materials to metal – materials that are helping engineers achieve greater flexibility, reduced weight and lower cost for all types of parts used on auto and truck bodies.

Sometimes, it’s the small things too, like the label on a bottle of juice. How does it manage to stay on a bottle that was transported through warm temperatures, stored in a refrigerator and then submersed in a bucket of ice? Our adhesives, that’s how. And they’re not just for labels. Ashland’s adhesive technologies are used in everything from medical applications and food packaging to painters’ tape and engineered wood products.

And, there’s more. Those running shoes you’re wearing, the tires on your car and the waterproof sealant around your kitchen sink likely contain our rubber products.

No matter the material, Ashland is helping make it perform better.

Our solutions provide an array of functional properties:
● Corrosion resistance.
● Fire retardance.
● Ultraviolet, water and chemical resistance.
● Heat and moisture resistance.
● Design flexibility.
● High mechanical strength.
● Low hazardous air pollutant.
● Impact resistance and scratch-proof.
● Excellent strength-to-weight ratio.
