Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics is part of an international family of companies headed by Compagnie de Saint-Gobain, a Paris-based multinational company with more than 350 years of engineered materials expertise.
Rather than simply manufacturing products from general commercial compounds, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics works closely with leading raw materials suppliers to capitalize on the latest polymer innovations and developmental grades of new materials. They tailor the most appropriate ingredients for their proprietary formulations through blending, mixing and compounding to achieve optimum mechanical properties.
Consistent performance stems from both strict quality control of formulation ingredients and consistently applied manufacturing practices in their facilities around the world. The result is worldwide availability and uniformity of its entire product line.
There is no universal solution to all application requirements. That's why Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics offers a range of products, each engineered to meet specific needs. By meeting these requirements, products from Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics provide the best possible value in use.
