50 Years of Innovation

Versatics Spotlight Image The Versatics™ business unit has a proud history of innovation that started with the invention of Versatic™ Acids in Pernis, Rotterdam. Since then, a range of Versatic acid derivatives have been introduced, such as VeoVa™ monomers and Cardura™  glycidyl ester. More to come as we continue to invest in new developments.

Highly Versatile Molecules for Paints and Coatings

Hexion is the number one global supplier of VersaticTM acids and derivatives for the paint, coatings and adhesives market. Versatic derivatives are excellent building blocks and monomers for developing high solids and water-based resins. They facilitate the trend towards more environmentally-suitable paints and coatings.


From protecting the coating on your car to improving the strength and durability of concrete, Versatic-based compounds have a well established track record of cost effective performance. Many other products such as adhesives, decorative paints, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, peroxides, catalysts, preservatives, adhesives, lubricants, and cosmetics currently benefit from the incorporation of our Versatic chemistry.

“Ultra-Low VOC, fast drying 2K polyurethane topcoats using Cardura™ glycidyl ester”

by Cedric Le Fevere
Hall 7, Stand 726
Wednesday April 5th |  10:50-11:10 a.m.


Learn how Cardura E10P glycidyl ester enables the production of ultra-high solids hybrid polyols: acrylic polyols polymerized in the presence of a hydroxyl-functional star polyester. This simple process provides flexibility in terms of the selection of solvents, monomers, initiators and reaction temperature and enables reaching an optimal balance between key performance parameters like VOC level, drying speed and cost.
