Surface Chemistry

Our Surface Chemistry business continues to perform well in 2010. The demand in the personal care, agro, mining and other performance application segments remains very healthy. Compared with a relatively strong quarter in 2009, volume increased 12 percent, with positive developments in all regions. Revenue increased 22 percent, driven primarily by the volume increase and a favorable currency impact of 12 percent. Improved demand, cost containment actions and the continued emphasis on margin management led to an improvement in results during the quarter.
