About SEKISUI Specialty Chemicals
At SEKISUI Specialty Chemicals (SSC), our mission is to be a leading innovative polymer solutions provider. We use our cutting-edge technologies and dedicated associates to create sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer and healthier life for people everywhere.
In June 2009, SEKISUI CHEMICAL Co., Ltd. acquired Celanese’s polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) business. We then took control of facilities in Calvert City, Kentucky, and Pasadena, Texas. Additionally, we took ownership of one unit in a complex in Tarragona, Spain, as well as resources in the company’s Houston Technology Center.
As a result of the Celanese acquisition, SEKISUI Specialty Chemicals established entities in the U.S., Europe and Mexico. Through these three sites, we aim to expand new applications for PVOH products while delivering consistent quality and service to our customers worldwide.
In 2018, SEKISUI Specialty Chemicals also began representing three new brands:
- Durastream CPVC compounds and resins
- Advancell thermo-expandable microspheres
- SLEC BK polyvinyl acetal resins
These new products come with decades of SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group experience and global support in each industry. SSC represents these products internationally, and we’re ready to collaborate with customers to create tomorrow’s essential products.
SEKISUI Specialty Chemicals is part of the multibillion-dollar, multinational company SEKISUI CHEMICAL Group. SSC is one of 11 SEKISUI America Corporation subsidiaries and one of nine SEKISUI in Europe subsidiaries.

We strive to “produce a better world with creative technologies,” and we’ve done so since our formation in 1947.
