The automotive industries two distinct sectors. Manufacturing, which includes the designing, development, and construction of motor vehicles. HI supplies materials used for the production of various automotive parts.
Improve and enhance every day commodities, like high-quality health ingredients that improve safety and bioavailability of nutritional supplements and sustainable development of industrial cleaning products.
Fine chemicals are single, pure chemical substances used as the starting materials for specialty chemicals. Manufactured in limited quantities to specifications for their intended purpose.
Industrial lubricants are used in manufacturing industries to help service equipment, reduce corrosion in materials, and control the heating and cooling of surfaces.
Agrochemicals are chemical products used in the agricultural industry. These include, but are not limited to, insecticides, herbicides, fertilizers, and chemical growth agents.
Segments in the oil field industry include drilling, stimulation, and production. Commonly used chemicals include inorganic salts, transition metal compounds, water-soluble and oil-soluble polymers, and surfactants
Silicone products are used in a wide variety of other industries because of the ability to operate at high temperatures. Silicones can be broken down into four categories: fluids, gels, elastomers, and resins.
The three main types of industrial resins used are epoxy, vinylester, and polyester resins. Resins are commonly used in the plastics industry. HI processes a large volume of phenol resins in particular.
Flame retardants chemicals delay or prevent the spread of fire. These products are used in a variety of industries, such as plastics, coatings, and textiles. Different formulations are needed depending on the application.
Additives are a broad category of ingredients subdivided into many different categories that serve specific industries, such as food, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and lubricants.
Active ingredients are chemical substances in products that are biologically active. Relevant in many industries, including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, herbicides, and surfactants.
Ceramic products are made of inorganic and nonmetallic materials that are rendered stable through a firing process. Major markets in the ceramics industry include wall and floor tiles, bricks, roof tiles, and sanitary-ware.
Water treatment reduces costs and risks in these processes by improving quality of water, reducing corrosion, and increasing process efficiency.
Light in weight and offering flexibility in composition, designed for specific purposes and applications. Composites are now commonly used in a multitude of industries.
Inert ingredients are any ingredients that are not biologically active used in a formulation or product. These can be fragrances, dyes, emulsifiers, carriers, and solvents. These ingredients are used to help enhance products or combine active ingredients to better facilitate them.
Specialty chemicals, also known as effect chemicals, are products that are used for the specific function they provide. Specialty chemicals encompass a wide variety of categories, including adhesives, additives, flavors, fragrances, lubricants, and surfactants.
Industrial products are equipment and materials that are used to create and sell products for industrial markets. Another major sector of industrial products encompasses raw materials used in the production process.
Pesticides are products used to control undesirable biological influences. Different pesticides include herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, repellents, disinfectants and sanitizers.
Industrial and institutional cleaners are surfactant products that are designed to be used in large markets. These products include cleaners for food processing equipment, commercial laundry, textile maintenance, healthcare disinfection, vehicle cleaning, and other industrial cleaning operations.
Herbicides support the growth of crops by protecting them from weeds and other unwanted plants. They are widely used in industries like agriculture, forestry, and pasture systems.
Pitch is the sticky and resinous substance obtained from the distillation of wood or coal tar. It is commonly used for waterproofing or as an adhesive.
The lawn and garden industry offers products that help with lawn and garden maintenance. These products help people improve the condition of lawn and gardens aesthetically, and maintain their health, ultimately maintaining and improving home value.
Pigments are substances used to color other materials. They are used in a variety of industries, usually in powder form that is combined with a binder which provides adhesion for the pigment paint.
The mining industry supplies coal, metals, industrial minerals, sand, and gravel to manufacturers and businesses all over the United States. They offer raw materials that are integral to other manufacturing industries.
Synthetics are materials that are made artificially through organic chemical synthesis. Often, they are created using petroleum as the main raw material. Common synthetics include medicines, rubbers, plastics, fuels, and oils.
Plastic is synthetic material made from organic polymers that can have different properties such as being moldable, rigid, flexible, or brittle. The plastics market is the third largest manufacturing industry in the United States. Plastics are used in some way, shape, or form in all industries and many products and is essential to modern society.
