                  Stepan Co was incorporated under the laws of the state of Delaware on February 19, 1959. The Company and its subsidiaries produce specialty and intermediate chemicals, which are sold to other manufacturers and then made into a variet...morey of end products. The Company has three reportable segments namely Surfactants, Polymers and Specialty products. Surfactants are chemical agents that affect the interaction between two surfaces; they can provide actions such as detergency (i.e., the ability of water to remove soil from another surface), wetting and foaming, dispersing, emulsification (aiding two dissimilar liquids to mix), demulsification, viscosity modifications and biocidal disinfectants. Surfactants are the basic cleaning agent in detergents for washing clothes, dishes, carpets, fine fabrics, floors ...moreand walls. Surfactants are also used for the same purpose in shampoos, body wash and conditioners, fabric softeners, toothpastes, cosmetics and other personal care products. Commercial and industrial applications include emulsifiers for agricultural products, emulsion polymers such as floor polishes and latex foams and coatings, wetting and foaming agents for wallboard manufacturing, surfactants for enhanced oil recovery and biodiesel. Polymers, which includes two primary product lines, polyols and phthalic anhydride, are used in multiple types of specialty polymers. Polyurethane polyols are used in the manufacture of rigid foam for thermal insulation in the construction industry. They are also a base for raw material for coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers. Phthalic anhydride is used in polyester resins, alkyd resins, and plasticizers for applications in construction materials and components of automotive, boating, and other consumer products and internally in the Company’s polyols. Specialty products are chemicals used in food, flavoring, nutritional supplement and pharmaceutical applications. The raw materials used by the Company are petroleum or plant based. Customers for surfactants are manufacturers of detergents, shampoos, lotions, fabric softeners, toothpastes and cosmetics. In addition, surfactants are sold to the producers of agricultural emulsifiers and lubricating products. Surfactants are also sold into the enhanced oil recovery and biodiesel end markets. Polymers are used in the construction and refrigeration industries, as well as in applications for the coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers and flexible foam industries. Polymers are also used by automotive, boating and other consumer product companies. Specialty products are used primarily by food, nutritional supplement and pharmaceutical manufacturers. The Company’s operations are subject to extensive local, state and federal regulations.lessless
