Axiall Corporation operates as a manufacturer and international marketer of chemicals and building products in North America. Segments The company’s segments include Chlorovinyls; Building Products; and Aromatics. Chlorovinyls Segment This segment produces a chain of products, including chlor-alkali and derivative products (chlorine, caustic soda, vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), vinyl resins, ethylene dichloride (or 1, 2 dichloroethane) (EDC), chlorinated solvents, calcium hypochlorite, hydrochloric acid (also known as muriatic acid) (HCL) and phosgene derivatives), and compound products (vinyl compounds and compound additives and plasticizers). Chlor-Alkali and Derivative Products The company’s chlor-alkali and derivative products are primarily chemical products produced to meet globally accepted standards for product grades and classifications. Its chlor-alkali and derivative products are as follows: Chlorine: In 2013, approximately 73 percent of the chlorine that the company produced was used to satisfy its internal chlorine-based production requirements. The company sold its remaining chlorine production into the merchant chlorine market. Caustic Soda: Caustic soda is a co-product of chlorine. In 2013, the company sold caustic soda to both domestic and international customers in various industries, with the pulp and paper, chemical and alumina industries. Other markets for the company’s caustic soda include the soap and detergents and water treatment industries. VCM: During 2013, the company used approximately 80 percent of its VCM production in the manufacture of vinyl resins in its PVC manufacturing operations. Vinyl Resins: The company supplies various grades of vinyl resins to various end-user markets. During 2013, approximately 52 percent of the company’s vinyl resins production was sold into the U.S. and Canadian merchant markets where its vinyl resins were used in flexible and rigid vinyl end-use applications. In 2013, the major end-uses of the company’s products were for pipe and pipe fittings, siding, extruded sheet and film and window profiles. Approximately 15 percent of the company’s production was exported to markets outside the U.S. and Canada, and approximately 33 percent of its vinyl resins were used internally in the manufacture of its vinyl compounds and vinyl building products. Other Chlor-Alkali and Derivative Products: In 2013, the company had revenues from various chlor-alkali and derivative product lines. Chlorinated Ethylenes: Chlorinated ethylene products include ethyl chloride, EDC, perchloroethylene, trichloroethylene, tri-ethane solvents and VersaTRANS solvents. Ethyl chloride serves as a base or intermediate in various coatings, films, plastics and gasoline additives. EDC is primarily used as an intermediate for making VCM. Trichloroethylene is a chlorinated solvent that is an excellent degreaser and an essential component for refrigerants. Perchloroethylene is a chlorinated solvent that is used extensively by the dry cleaning industry. The company’s specialty solvents are also used for polymers, electronics cleaning, precision cleaning and certain metal cleaning applications. Calcium Hypochlorite: Calcium hypochlorite is a general purpose sanitizer that is used in a range of water treatment applications, including swimming pools, drinking water, wastewater, safety and irrigation. Its calcium hypochlorite products include the Accu-Tab chlorination system, which combines patented erosion feeder chlorinator technology with proprietary calcium hypochlorite tablets, offering a chlorination solution for industrial and swimming pool applications. HCL: HCL is used in chemicals and pharmaceutical production, food processing, steel pickling and natural gas and oil production. Phosgene Derivatives: The company’s phosgene derivatives are specialty chemicals that are used in the production of agricultural chemicals, organic chemicals, pharmaceuticals and plastics. Compound Products Vinyl Compounds: Vinyl compounds are highly customized formulations that offer specific end-use properties based on customer-determined manufacturing specifications that enab
