A Century of Innovation

Reducing environmental impact with innovative performance materials.

About Us

As part of the Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies business group, our materials are used in various industrial applications. While these applications are diverse, the consistent theme is the innovation and quality, helping our customers collaborate with their own stakeholders to create new value in their own offerings.

The world’s leading businesses and monetary institutions rely on Honeywell’s Authentication Technologies for brand protection, currency and document security needs using a unique portfolio of covert luminescent pigments, chemical taggants and optoelectronic detection systems. Our Lumilux™ fluorescent pigments and industrial luminescent pigments were originally development for authentication applications under the Riedel-de-Haën brand.

Under the Riedel-de-Haën Honeywell Fine Chemicals brands, we have produced high purity fine chemicals for over 200 years. Our industrial customers use these products in energy and battery applications and catalysts and catalyst precursors.

Honeywell Fine Chemicals has also been supplying flux for brazing aluminum for more than two decades. Our high-quality brazing fluxes, based on Potassium Fluoroaluminate and Cesium Fluoroaluminate, are available in a range of formats, including paints, powders, suspensions, and blends.

Performance Additives offer synthetic waxes and polymers under the ACumist®, A-C®, AClyn®, Cohesa®, NduroMatt™, Rheolub® and Honeywell Titan™ brand names.  Honeywell is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of low-molecular-weight polyethylene waxes for inks, paints, coatings, plastics, adhesives or rubber and asphalt. Our performance additives help improve performance, cost savings, and manufacturing efficiency.

Honeywell Electronic Materials is a leading supplier to the worldwide electronics industry, providing critical materials that enhance the performance and productivity of your manufacturing processes. Continuous investment in advanced research, worldwide strategic collaborations, and dedication to working closely with our customers have resulted in our innovative products serving the critical needs of manufacturers in the semiconductor and display industries.

Honeywell developed Spectra® fiber, a new type of synthetic yarn, and we were one of the first to offer extended chain, high modulus polyethylene fibers. Spectra advanced fibers and composites are used to protect law enforcement and military personnel, complete deep water installations in the oil and gas industry, and help fishermen secure more prized catches. In addition to Spectra fiber, we manufacture Spectra Shield®, Gold Shield® and Gold Flex® ballistic composite materials. Honeywell maintains an active advanced fibers and composites research and development program to inform the next generation of high-performance materials technology.

Through our Solstice® brand of low-global-warming aerosols and performance fluids, we are providing responsible replacements for hydrocarbons, HCFCs and HFCs. Solstice-branded products, used for vapor degreasing, cleaning and industrial aerosols, are based on Honeywell’s hydrofluoroolefin technology, and are designed to help customers lower their carbon footprint without sacrificing end product performance.

At Honeywell, we see Responsible Care® as the foundation of environmental, health, and safety excellence in our business. We incorporate HS&E management systems into all phases of the chemical life cycle. Our commitment to continuous health, safety, and environmental performance improvement is evident at our facilities around the world – it is the way we do business.
