Petrochemicals and Polymers

Solutions for Petrochemicals, Primary Olefins, Reactive Monomers and Polymers

Nalco Water offers superior, reliable and sustainable solutions for every processing threat your plant faces. From corrosion control and fouling management to solutions that help you achieve sustainability targets when manufacturing ethylene, butadiene, styrene, and vinyl acetate, we reduce your total cost of operations and deliver long-term gains. We take pride in offering sustainable, reliable and profitable solutions for the petrochemical industry.

Reactive Monomers

Reactive monomers are building blocks for the polymers that are used to make products we use every day. However, unwanted polymerization in the manufacturing of these monomers can result in lost production, downtime, cleaning and disposal costs, and other issues.  Nalco Water additives can prevent costly fouling in reactive monomer operations to help improve profitability and reliability.

PRISM™ Programme

The PRISM™ Programme provides solutions for fouling and corrosion issues associated with styrene manufacturing. This comprehensive programme includes inhibitors and green retarders to help improve plant performance, protect critical assets and achieve sustainability goals. 



Industrial and consumer markets have a growing demand for soft, sticky polymers. Many polymers are manufactured as plastic pellets or beads. End-users need the finished plastic to be uniform in size, free-flowing, meet colour specifications, and exhibit the desired physical properties. Nalco Water’s innovative products and technologies deliver optimum results to ensure productivity and profitability for polymer producers.
