core and molecular technologies
Ashland is able to support a broad range of products and applications because of our solid expertise in polymer science. With deep understanding of polymer design and assembly, Ashland produces a wide variety of homopolymers, copolymers, graft copolymers and crosslinked copolymers on platforms constructed from both synthetic and natural building blocks.
From our broad base of materials and capabilities, Ashland quickly adapts to new market trends as consumer preferences and needs change. In addition, as scientific fields progress, Ashland is well positioned to be a critical partner to new and emerging application fields, especially where new polymer functionalities are required.
No other specialty materials company possesses such a broad range of knowledge, experience and capabilities. Ashland's core technologies range from polysaccharides (e.g. cellulosics, cassia, guar), acetylenics (e.g. polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP)), polyethers (aquaflow™) and vinyl ethers (gantrez™) to biofunctionals and functional nutrients. A truly unique environment for exciting discoveries and developments.
