Versatic Acid & Derivatives


Unconventional Chemistry

Products containing Momentive’s Versatic™ acid derivatives have unique properties and resist degradation because of their ability to create molecular barriers via steric hindrance.  Versatic derivatives are comprised of a highly-branched carbon-rich molecule with vinyl ester, glycidyl ester, acrylate, hydroxyl and or carboxylic functionality which allows them to be utilized in a wide variety of products.

 

From protecting the coating on your car to improving the strength and durability of concrete, Versatic-based compounds have a well established track record of cost effective performance. Many other products such as adhesives, decorative paints, agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, peroxides, catalysts, preservatives, adhesives, lubricants, and cosmetics currently benefit from the incorporation of our Versatic chemistry.
