Momentive Performance Materials Inc. was founded in 1857 and is headquartered in Watford, New York, United States.
Momentive was formed in October 2010 through the combination of Momentive Performance Materials Inc. and Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. (formerly known as Hexion Specialty Chemicals Inc.). Through its two major subsidiaries, the holding company has become a global leader in developing high-performance resins, silicones, and other advanced materials.
Momentive's products include silicones used in several markets., as well as quartz and ceramic materials. The company also produces raw materials such as siloxane polymers and various additives, including silanes, specialty fluids, and urethane additives.
Our global silicones business brings innovation to a wide range of industries, including automotive, electronics, personal care, consumer products, aerospace and building and construction, to name a few. We offer basic siloxane polymers and an extensive portfolio of additives, including silanes, specialty fluids, and urethane additives. We also have an extensive offering of formulated products, including elastomers and coatings. And, of course, we also collaboratively formulate with customers to meet specific needs.
Our global Quartz business manufactures, sells and distributes high-purity fused quartz and ceramic materials. From semiconductors to lighting and consumer electronics, these specialized products set the standard for applications that require optical clarity, design flexibility and durability in extreme environments. We work with our customers to help increase their manufacturing productivity and solve complex design problems-which are just two of the reasons these materials are specified by more and more customers around the world.
