Huntsman Corporation, through its subsidiary, Huntsman International LLC, manufactures organic chemical products and inorganic chemical products. Segments The company operates in five segments: Polyurethanes, Performance Products, Advanced Materials, Textile Effects and Pigments and Additives. Polyurethanes segment The company manufactures and markets a range of polyurethane chemicals, including methyl diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) products, propylene oxide (PO), polyols, propylene glycol (PG) and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). Polyurethane chemicals are used to produce rigid and flexible foams, as well as coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers. The company’s customers produce polyurethane products through the combination of an isocyanate, such as MDI, with polyols, which are derived largely from PO and ethylene oxide (EO). The company produces approximately 2,000 distinct MDI-based polyurethane products by modifying the MDI molecule through varying the proportion and type of polyol used and by introducing other chemical additives to its MDI formulations. The company and some of its customers process PO into derivative products, such as polyols for polyurethane products, PG and various other chemical products. End uses for these derivative products include applications in the home furnishings, construction, appliances, packaging, automotive and transportation, food, paints and coatings and cleaning products industries. The company also produces methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) as a co-product of its PO manufacturing process. Products and Markets MDI is used primarily in rigid foam applications and in various customized, higher-value flexible foam and coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers. Polyols, including polyether and polyester polyols, are used in conjunction with MDI in rigid foam, flexible foam and other non-foam applications. Polyurethane chemicals are sold to customers who combine the chemicals to produce polyurethane products. Depending on their needs, customers would use either commodity polyurethane chemicals produced for mass sales or polyurethane systems modified for their specific requirements. TPU: TPU is a fully formulated thermal plastic derived from the reaction of MDI or an aliphatic isocyanate with polyols to produce qualities, such as durability, flexibility, strength, abrasion-resistance, shock absorbency and chemical resistance. Polyols: Polyols are combined with MDI and other isocyanates to create a spectrum of polyurethane products. Aniline: Aniline is an intermediate chemical used primarily to manufacture MDI. PO: PO is an intermediate chemical used mainly to produce a range of polyols and PG. MTBE: MTBE is an oxygenate that is blended with gasoline to reduce harmful vehicle emissions and to enhance the octane rating of gasoline. Sales and Marketing: The company’s sales group markets its polyurethane chemicals to approximately 3,500 customers in 90 countries. Its key end-use markets include the appliance, automotive, footwear, furniture and coatings, construction products, adhesives, sealants and elastomers industries. The company provides polyurethane solutions as components or in the form of ‘systems’ in which the company provides the total isocyanate and polyol formulation to its customers in ready-to-use form. The company manufactures polyols primarily to support its MDI customers' requirements. Joint Ventures Rubicon Joint Venture: Chemtura Corporation is the company’s joint venture partner in Rubicon LLC, which owns aniline, nitrobenzene and DPA manufacturing facilities in Geismar, Louisiana. The company is entitled to approximately 85% of the nitrobenzene and aniline production capacity of Rubicon LLC, and Chemtura Corporation is entitled to 100% of the DPA production. In addition to operating the joint venture's aniline, nitrobenzene and DPA facilities, Rubicon LLC also operates its wholly owned MDI, polyol and Maleic Anhydride facilities at Geismar and is responsible for providing other auxiliary services to the entire Geismar complex. Chinese MDI Joint Ventures: The company is involved in two related joint v
