Its Aromatics products include Cumene such as Phenol and acetone. In its chlorovinyls segment, it produces chlorine and its co-product caustic soda by subjecting salt brine (sodium chloride) to an electric current creating a chemical reaction that results in chlorine gas, hydrogen gas and caustic soda (sodium hydroxide). It produces VCM by reacting purchased ethylene with chlorine. It produces vinyl resins by polymerization of VCM in a batch reactor process. It formulates its vinyl compounds to specific customer needs by blending its vinyl resins with various additives such as plasticizers, impact modifiers, stabilizers and pigments, most of which are purchased. It also has the capacity to produce EDC, an intermediate in the manufacture of VCM, for external sales. The significant raw materials it purchases from third parties include salt brine, ethylene, compound additives and natural gas.

The principal raw material it uses in the production of its building products is vinyl resin, which is blended with other compound additives to form vinyl compounds, which are then extruded or injection molded. The building products segment faces competition for each of its products from numerous manufacturers of vinyl products and traditional building materials. This segment's chief competitors include Ply Gem Holdings, Inc., VEKA Inc., CertainTeed Corporation, Vision Group, IPEX Inc., Associated Materials, Quanex, Deceuninck North America, CPG Azek and Bow Plastics.
