Croda Smart Materials provides environmentally friendly and bio-based solutions to polymer manufacturers and coating and adhesive formulators. The company has developed bio-based building-blocks as modifiers that result in flexible and tough, hydrophobic polymer materials. Thus, the core competence of Croda is industrial-scale production of fatty acid-based monomers from renewable sources (corn, rapeseed).
