Specialty Polymers

Improve product performance, plant productivity with specialty polymers

Baker Hughes specialty polymers offer solutions for five markets: plastics additives, imaging and coatings, candles, adhesives, and personal care. Our olefin-based, low-molecular weight polymers and waxes improve the performance, use, and production of our customers’ products.

Specialty Polymers Markets




Our specialty polymers improve candle opacity, flow, hardness, strength, color dispersion, and fragrance retention. These polymers can serve as a replacement for stearic acid.


Plastics Additives

We’ve developed multiple polymer families for diverse applications, such as EPS nucleation, film and sheet antiblocking, PVC lubrication, and mold release.



Our low molecular-weight polymers and waxes dramatically improve the application and performance of hot-melt adhesive formulations.


Imaging and Coatings

Our polymer and wax additives ensure coatings, inks, and toners perform best. These additives cover melt and functional chemistries for liquid- and solid-phase applications.


New Phase Technologies

New Phase Technologies offers solutions for the cosmetic chemist. Looking for brilliant shine, stable sticks, or SPF boost? Enhance the efficacy and aesthetics of your formulas.
