In May 2020, Huntsman Advanced Materials completed the acquisition of CVC Thermoset Specialties (CTS), a North American specialty chemical manufacturer serving the industrial composites, adhesives, and coatings markets. CTS offers specialized curing and toughening agents, resin adducts, and other high-performance epoxy resins used in a wide range of applications.
In January 2021, Huntsman Advanced Materials completed the acquisition of Gabriel Performance Products, a North American specialty chemical manufacturer of specialty additives and epoxy curing agents for the coatings, adhesives, sealants, and composite end-markets, from Audax Private Equity.
Huntsman Advanced Materials’ Phenoxy™ PK™ has the broadest range and longest experience in phenoxy resin industry. Phenoxy™ PK has ductile, amorphous, thermoplastic polymers that contain excellent thermal stability, adhesive strength, flexibility, impact strength, and vapor barrier properties. Phenoxy™ resins (Phenoxies) may be crosslinked by reacting its hydroxyl functional groups with isocyanates, melamine resins, or phenolic resins. Crosslinked Phenoxy™ resins exhibit excellent chemical resistance, hardness, and adhesion on many substrates including steel, aluminum, glass, and carbon fibers, and plastics such as nylon and polyester (PET). Phenoxy™ PKHH may also be formulated in single-pack epoxies containing latent hardeners, such as dicyandiamide, providing improved toughness and adhesive strength on substrates when properly cured. Phenoxy™ PKHH is soluble in many polar, aprotic solvents such as MEK, cyclohexanone, and glycol ethers.

Committed to Safety & Environment
Decades of experience safely manufacturing and handling challenging raw materials and chemicals has put us far ahead of the curve for environmental compliance. Our nationally recognized Environmental, Health, and Safety and Quality (EHS&Q) programs include a powerful Integrated Management System (IMS) that allows us to effectively control our environmental footprint.
Huntsman Advanced Materials’ Integrated Management Systems is certified by Amplus Global Associates (formerly CCAS Americas company), that covers the organization’s three highest standards: ISO 9001: 2015, ISO 14000:2015, and ISO 18000:2007.
Our corporate culture is constantly seeking opportunities that are innovative, safe, and responsible. Our Ashtabula, Ohio facility participates in the ChemStewards® program through the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA) further certifying our commitment to all of our stakeholders.
With superior EHS&Q measures in the plant and on-site, plus advanced facilities and equipment, we can safely and efficiently handle bulk raw materials and hazardous materials. Everyone associated with Huntsman Advanced Materials—whether management, employees or contractors—is responsible for operating in the most environmentally and socially responsible manner.
Enviromentally Responsible Products & Processes
We manufacture our products to make the biggest impact in the markets we serve, while also leaving the smallest footprint on our planet. Products such as Ranbar® use low-cost water reducible technology and high solids VOC compliant resins to create greener solvents. Also, everything from labor, materials, and our manufacturing processes are analyzed for ways to increase customer efficiency and minimize waste. Huntsman Advanced Materials’ “Operation Safety Cares” initiative revolves around 5 pillars: Community. Accountability. Responsibility. Emphasis. And Safety. Each one has specific goals that either meet or exceed our stakeholder’s requirements and specifications.
