Axiall Corporation operates as a manufacturer and marketer of chemicals and building products in North America and internationally. Segments The company operates through three segments: Chlorovinyls, Building Products, and Aromatics. Chlorovinyls segment This segment produces a chain of products, including chlor-alkali and derivative products (chlorine, caustic soda, vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), vinyl resins, ethylene dichloride (or 1, 2 dichloroethane) (EDC), chlorinated solvents, calcium hypochlorite, hydrochloric acid (also known as muriatic acid) (HCL), and phosgene derivatives), and compound products (vinyl compounds, and compound additives and plasticizers). Chlor-Alkali and Derivative Products The company’s chlor-alkali and derivative products are primarily chemical products produced to meet globally accepted standards for product grades and classifications. Its chlor-alkali and derivative products are as follows: Chlorine: In 2014, approximately 73 percent of the chlorine that the company produced was used to satisfy its internal chlorine-based production requirements. The company sold its remaining chlorine production into the North American merchant chlorine market. Caustic Soda: Caustic soda is a co-product of chlorine. The company sells caustic soda to both domestic and international customers in various industries, with the pulp and paper, chemical, and alumina industries constituting its primary markets. Other markets for its caustic soda include the soap and detergents, and water treatment industries. In 2014, approximately 12 percent of the caustic that the company produced was exported to markets outside the United States and Canada. VCM: During 2014, the company used approximately 89 percent of its VCM production in the manufacture of vinyl resins in its polyvinyl chloride manufacturing operations. In 2014, approximately 5 percent of its VCM production was exported to markets outside the United States and Canada. Vinyl Resins: The company supplies various grades of vinyl resins to various end-user markets. During 2014, approximately 54 percent of its vinyl resins production was sold into the U.S. and Canadian merchant markets where its vinyl resins were used in various flexible and rigid vinyl end-use applications. In 2014, the major end-users of the company’s products were for pipe and pipe fittings, siding, extruded sheet and film and window profiles. In 2014, approximately 12 percent of the company’s production was exported to markets outside the U.S. and Canada; and approximately 34 percent of its vinyl resins were used internally in the manufacture of its vinyl compounds and vinyl building products. Chlorinated Ethylenes: Chlorinated ethylene products include ethyl chloride, EDC, perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, tri-ethane solvents and VersaTRANS solvents. Ethyl chloride serves as a base or intermediate in various coatings, films, plastics, and gasoline additives. EDC is primarily used as an intermediate for making VCM. Perchloroethylene is a chlorinated solvent that is used extensively by the dry cleaning industry. Trichloroethylene is a chlorinated solvent that is a degreaser and a component for refrigerants. The company’s specialty solvents are also used for high performance polymers, electronics cleaning, precision cleaning, and certain metal cleaning applications. In 2014, approximately 91 percent of its chlorinated ethylenes production was sold to external customers, with 15 percent exported to markets outside the United States and Canada. Approximately 9 percent of the company’s chlorinated ethylenes production was used in its internal operations. Calcium Hypochlorite: Calcium hypochlorite is a general purpose sanitizer that is used in a range of water treatment applications, including swimming pools, drinking water, wastewater, safety and irrigation. The company’s calcium hypochlorite products include the Accu-Tab chlorination system, which combines patented erosion feeder chlorinator technology with proprietary calcium hypochlorite tablets, offering a chlorination solution for industrial and swimming pool applications.
