W. R. Grace & Co. engages in the production and sale of specialty chemicals and specialty materials worldwide. The company conducts business in approximately 40 countries. Segments The company operates through three segments: Grace Catalysts Technologies, Grace Materials Technologies, and Grace Construction Products. Grace Catalysts Technologies This segment produces and sells catalysts and related products and technologies used in refining, petrochemical, and other chemical manufacturing applications, as follows: Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) catalysts, which help to ‘crack’ the hydrocarbon chain in distilled crude oil to produce transportation fuels, such as gasoline and diesel fuels, and other petroleum-based products; and FCC additives used to reduce sulfur in gasoline, improve propylene production from refinery FCC units, and reduce emissions of sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxide from refinery FCC units. Hydroprocessing catalysts, majority of which are marketed through the company’s Advanced Refining Technologies LLC joint venture with Chevron Products Company in which the company holds a 50% economic interest, which are used in process reactors to upgrade heavy oils into lighter, useful products by removing impurities, such as nitrogen, sulfur, and heavy metals, allowing less expensive feedstocks to be used in the petroleum refining process. Polyolefin catalysts and catalyst supports, also called specialty catalysts, for the production of polypropylene and polyethylene thermoplastic resins, which could be customized to improve the performance of a range of industrial and consumer end-use applications, including high pressure pipe, geomembranes, food packaging, automotive parts, medical devices, and textiles; chemical catalysts used in various industrial, environmental, and consumer applications; and gas-phase polypropylene process technology, which provides the company’s licensees with a capability to manufacture polypropylene products for a range of end-use applications. The company also offers a line of catalysts, customized for individual refiners, used in distillate hydrotreating to produce ultra-low sulfur content gasoline and diesel fuel, including its SMART CATALYST SYSTEM and APART catalyst systems. Grace Materials Technologies This segment produces and sells specialty materials, coatings and sealants and related products used in coatings, consumer, industrial, pharmaceutical, and packaging applications, as follows: Engineered materials, including silica-based and silica-alumina-based materials, used in: Coatings and print media applications, including functional additives that provide matting effects and corrosion protection for industrial and consumer coatings, and media and paper products to improve quality in ink jet coatings. Consumer applications, as a free-flow agent, carrier or processing aid in food and personal care products; as a toothpaste abrasive and thickener; and for the processing and stabilization of edible oils and beverages. Industrial applications, such as tires and rubber, precision investment casting, refractory, insulating glass windows, adsorbents for use in petrochemical and natural gas processes and biofuels, various functions, such as reinforcement, high temperature binding, and moisture scavenging. Pharmaceutical, life science, and related applications, including silica-based separation media, excipients, and pharmaceutical intermediates; complementary purification products, chromatography consumables, and instruments; and CO2 absorbents used in anesthesiology and mine safety applications. Packaging products, including can and closure sealants used to seal and improve the shelf life of can and bottle contents; coatings for cans and closures that prevent metal corrosion, protect package contents from the influence of metal and ensure proper adhesion of sealing compounds; and scavenging technologies designed to reduce off-taste and extend the shelf-life of packaged products. Grace Construction Products This segment produces and sells construction chemicals and building materials, as follows: Specialty constr
