Hexion has reported net sales of US$952 million, a 4% increase compared to the prior year.

‘Our positive momentum continued in the third quarter of 2018 reflecting strong results in our base epoxy resins, phenolic specialty resins, and forest products businesses,’ said Craig A Rogerson, chairman, president and CEO. ‘We continue to experience solid demand in our global forest products business and strong market fundamentals in our base epoxy resins business. We expect strength in these businesses to persist for the foreseeable future and to support strong 2018 results over the prior year.

‘Additionally, we expect the introduction of new products and government supported investment in the China wind energy market to drive improvement in our epoxy specialty business in 2019.’
