ST LOUIS, Nov. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Solutia Inc. (NYSE: SOA) announced today that it has sold its Perkalink® business and entered into a definitive agreement to sell select Primary Accelerators assets to LANXESS, a Germany-based specialty chemicals company.

"The sale of the Perkalink business is yet another strategic step forward in focusing Solutia's Flexsys® portfolio on the manufacture and supply of high-value, global market-leading rubber chemicals," said Greta Senn, president and general manager of Solutia's Technical Specialties division.  "In addition, our ability to sell select assets of Solutia's discontinued Primary Accelerators business allows us to maximize the value of those assets as we exit the business."

Solutia's Technical Specialties division offers advanced chemical and specialty products that meet or exceed rigorous specifications and are distributed through a reliable, global supply system. As one of the world's largest producers of chemicals for the rubber and tire industry, Flexsys products help control the process of manufacturing rubber, while improving its durability, flexibility and appearance.  The Perkalink business represented less than 1% of Solutia's consolidated sales in 2009.  For more information on Solutia and its diverse portfolio of product solutions, please visit www.solutia.com .
