We are an industry leader in advocating the safe and responsible use of formaldehyde and formaldehyde-based materials. Hexion continually looks for better ways to produce and deliver formaldehyde and sponsors ongoing scientific research into this vital chemical product.
Oil & Gas
Hexion’s formaldehyde is used in the making of everything from gas treatments to fuel additives. It’s also the base for triazine which is used to remove hydrogen sulfide from natural gas and oil. Formaldehyde is also used in phenolic resins for coating proppants and phenolic demulsifiers for oil treatment.
Agriculture Chemicals Urea Formaldehyde Concentrate is commonly used in agriculture for both crop nutrition (fertilizers) and crop protection (herbicides). It’s typically used to control the release of nitrogen fertilizer and herbicide. Hexion provides formaldehyde to the world’s leading producers of agricultural chemicals.
Hexion’s formaldehyde is used in a variety of chemical intermediates where a desired process or reaction is needed. These applications vary from being a step in the chemical production process to the end product of a process and include everything from the production of biocides, amines and reagents to water treatments, electronics and rubber and tire production. Formaldehyde is also used as a crosslinker to create solutions and resins.
Formaldehyde is a key ingredient in coatings for the automotive and industrial coatings industries.
