Therminol® heat transfer fluid history

Therminol 50th Anniversary Therminol heat transfer fluids were created over 50 years ago by Monsanto. In September 1997 the chemical businesses of Monsanto were spun off to form a new company called Solutia Inc.

Therminol fluids were previously sold under different trade names in various parts of the world, including Therminol in North America, South America and Asia, and SantoTherm and GiloTherm in Europe. Since January 1, 1997, all of our heat transfer fluids worldwide have been marketed under the brand name Therminol.

Eastman logoIn July 2012, Solutia was acquired by Eastman Chemical Company. Eastman’s commitment to Therminol heat transfer fluids business and its customers was apparent immediately as investments were made to meet the needs of the future, including process improvements in the Anniston, Alabama plant, and breaking ground on a plant expansion in Newport, Wales that will significantly increase capacity to serve global customer base. As part of that global commitment, a new Specialty Fluids Testing Lab was opened in Singapore that will provide more local service in the Asia Pacific region.

Even though the company name has changed, Therminol has grown to become the brand name of the largest selling synthetic heat transfer fluids in the world, with manufacturing facilities on four continents. In 2013, the Therminol brand marked its 50th Anniversary, a testament to its high performance products and technical support that sets the stage for servicing heat transfer system customers for the next 50 years.
