Momentive Performance Materials – Why Work For Us?

The Power of Possibilities

At Momentive, the most important question we ask is "What if?" It's a question that speaks directly to what we believe. Like an exploring spirit, and a dedication to discovering the new, and the better. In approaching each opportunity with tenacity and technology. In knowing that collaboration and partnership yields exponential results. And we believe that together, with you, we can push the boundaries of what we all thought possible. For more than 75 years we've fostered an unexpected, innovative way of looking at and solving challenges. From the soles of the boots that first walked on the moon to tires that more tightly hug the roads here on earth, we invent solutions that work- solutions that deliver real results. We are a tenacious partner with a thirst to understand your challenges. We have the deep industry knowledge and the vast collective experience that inspires both bold approaches and breakthrough innovations. We believe in asking "What if?" Then, together, inventing something that makes "What if?" real.

Momentive Silicones

Our global silicones business brings innovation to a wide range of industries, including automotive, electronics, personal care, consumer products, aerospace, and building and construction to name a few. We offer basic siloxane polymers; and an extensive portfolio of additives, including silanes, specialty fluids, and urethane additives. We also have an extensive offering of formulated products, including elastomers and coatings. And, of course, we also collaboratively formulate with customers to meet specific needs.

Momentive Quartz

Our global Quartz business manufactures, sells, and distributes high-purity fused quartz and ceramic materials. From semiconductors to lighting and consumer electronics, these specialized products set the standard for applications that require optical clarity, design flexibility, and durability in extreme environments. We partner with our customers to help increase their manufacturing productivity and solve complex design problems-which are just two of the reasons these materials are the most specified by customers around the world.
