A new, third-edition update is now available for this company’s “Performance Specialties Reference Guide.” Products in the guide are divided into four major groups: vinyl monomers; performance polymers; specialty chemicals; and surfactants, solvents, and intermediates. They cover the core chemistries sold through the company’s Performance Specialties unit: hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC), methylcellulose (MC), carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), hydroxypropylcellulose (HPC), and vinyl pyrrolidones and its derivatives.  

This reference guide reportedly provides detailed descriptions of chemistry types, chemical characterizations, functionality, physical properties, performance characteristics, applications and benefits. It also provides a list of generic chemical names for Ashland’s trademarked brand name products.
