    Digging deep to find solutions

    The world's ever-growing population and its increasing demand for energy makes companies like Ashland dig deep to find solutions to quench the world's thirst for energy. It doesn't take a gusher of solutions, just a few that work and work well. Ashland's knowledge and expertise has led to solutions that help increase the efficiency of oil and natural gas extraction for on-and off-shore operations.

    Maximizing the oil and gas output from every source is the key concern for oil and gas companies around the globe. As a leading manufacturer of industrial chemical ingredients, Ashland products provide solutions for a wide range of applications. Our products are used in drilling fluids, stimulation fluids, completion fluids, and workover fluids, along with cementing slurries and production chemicals. We provide oil and gas service companies superior and cost-effective fluid performance across a broad range of pH, temperature and salt conditions. In addition to being versatile and widely compatible, many of our products are also environmentally friendly¹, biodegradable and composed of substances that appear on OSPAR’s PLONOR list². Please consult your sales representative for this information.

    ¹ Contains no hazardous or toxic compounds.

    ² The Ospar List of Substances Used and Discharged Offshore Which Are Considered to Pose Little or No Risk to the Environment (known as the PLONOR list) contains chemical substances that OSPAR has deemed do not require strong regulation by participating governments for their use and discharge offshore. From Section 1 of the 2018 PLONOR list: “[From assessment of their intrinsic properties, the OSPAR Commission considers that they pose little or no risk to the environment.” More information about OSPAR’s PLONOR list can be found at OSPAR’s website: www.ospar.org.

  • Batteries

    finding solutions for a longer life

    Ashland goes the extra mile when it comes to finding solutions and now we can help you do the same with longer-life batteries.  The rate of change in the world can leave some ideas in the rear-view mirror, but Ashland anticipates changing needs to stay one step ahead. It's not a 'plug 'n play' when you work with Ashland.  The Ashland solvers look at all the positives and negatives of possible solutions and technologies to find the one that best fits your need.  Recharge your products and markets through collaboration with Ashland.

    Generating renewable energy from the sun and wind is a growing trend. How to effectively store this energy on a large scale is a growing challenge. The increased market for electric and hybrid vehicles creates an ever-growing need for longer-life batteries to expand the driving range.  Ashland thrives on putting science and chemistry to work to provide solutions to these and other challenges. As a leading supplier of a wide range of specialty additives and ingredients Ashland provides binders to the lithium ion battery (LiB) industry. Soteras™ MSi, a unique binder for high-capacity silicon-based anodes found in lithium ion batteries, is among the most recent innovations from Ashland. Able to be processed using standard industry practices, its ability to control swelling results in superior cycle performance yielding longer battery life.

    featured products:

    • Soteras™ DSA dispersant for hydrophobic particles in water-based slurries
      Soteras™ DSA is an effective dispersant for aqueous systems for both the anode and cathode, including actives like lithium ion phosphate (LFP)

    • Soteras™ CCS-V binder for ceramic coated lithium ion battery separators 
      Soteras™ CCS-V binder enables separator producers to meet ever more stringent safety requirements from lithium ion battery cell producers. It employs Ashland’s unique 2-component cross-linking system:
      1. unique polymer which promotes adhesion to separator
      2. cross-linking agent to ensure thermal and mechanical stability

    • Soteras™ DSV dispersant
      Soteras™ DSV dispersant is a polymer dispersant for aqueous ceramic coated separators. Soteras™ DVS dispersant functions at low dosage to reduce the slurry viscosity.
