Our ability to create renewable products with novel performance characteristics is of significant interest to the marketplace. We have a variety of products that vary in saturation, chain length and symmetry that offer unique functionalities, along with materials that can be easily derivatized into new molecules. Our chemistries deliver a diverse range of properties, including exceptional solvent resistance and extreme toughness, often with environmental profile benefits such as low-to-no VOC.
Elevance's Inherent® renewable building blocks are di-functional specialty chemicals that are advancing innovation in the plastics and coatings industry. We are making it possible for high-performance polymers used in durable goods to be made from a broad number of renewable oil feedstocks.
Inherent® products enable our customers to:
- Grow businesses using renewable feedstocks and monomers with novel functionality
- Expand portfolios with products that deliver differentiated performance
- Diversify raw material supply chains while achieving sustainability goals
Our Inherent® C18 Diacid expands options for manufacturers of specialty polyamides, polyester polyols for polyurethanes and polyesters. It allows the production of other novel chemistries, providing a variety of options of particular interest in engineered polymers, coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers.
