Axiall is harmonizing the product information for chlorovinyls. Until that is done, please reference the legacy documents as appropriate.The chlorovinyls segment consists of a highly integrated chain of products that include electrovinyl products, compound products and chlorine-based products. Axiall is North America's 3rd largest producer of chlor-alkali and 2nd largest producer of vinyl chloride monomer.
Chlorine is a naturally-occurring element; however it is found rarely in nature. Today, it is one of the most commonly manufactured chemicals in the United States because of its many uses and benefits. Chlorine is produced by passing an electric current through salt water, or brine. The electrolysis splits the salt molecule apart and creates chlorine. The co-product of this process creates caustic soda, which is another salable product Axiall has in our product portfolio.

Caustic soda is a co-product of the chlorine manufacturing process. Caustic soda further diversifies our revenue base as it has many industrial applications. Axiall sells all of our caustic soda domestically and overseas to customers in numerous industries, with the pulp and paper and chemical industries constituting our largest markets. Other uses for caustic soda include the making of soaps and detergents, finishing operations in the textile industry, petroleum drilling and refining, and cleansing and peeling operations in the food industry.

Ethylene dichloride (EDC) is used primarily in the production of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM). It is produced by reacting chlorine with ethylene. Axiall uses nearly all of the EDC that we produce in our production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). While its primary use is in the production of PVC, EDC can also be used as a solvent, fumigant, degreaser, or paint remover, and as an intermediate for the production of other organic compounds.
Axiall is one of a relatively small number of manufacturers of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM). We manufacture VCM by heating ethylene dichloride (EDC) in the presence of oxygen. The most important use of VCM worldwide is its polymerization to produce polyvinyl chloride (PVC), or plastics.
Product Stewardship Summary
Vinyl is among the most widely used plastics in the world today, and we supply numerous grades of vinyl resins to a broad number of end-use markets. The majority of our vinyl resins are sold to customers who use the material to formulate vinyl compounds, which are then heated and shaped using various extrusion and molding processes to create finished products. These products include pipe and pipe fittings, wire and cable coatings, home siding and windows, electrical wall boxes and apparatus, fencing, home and office furnishings, consumer products, packaging and containers.
