Building on the successful launch in North America of one of the industry's most comprehensive lines of additive and specialty products, Solutia Inc. today announced the introduction of a new website ( designed to help coatings customers in North America solve a broad range of product formulation problems.

The new Solutia Additives website gives customers and other visitors around-the-clock access to product information, along with a number of helpful customer service tools and features.

"This new website makes it quick and easy for paint formulators and technologists to obtain detailed information about the high performance products in our additives portfolio," said Frank Jakse, Marketing Specialist in Solutia's Resins and Additives business unit.
