                     Adds New Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) and Release Coatings Capacity

Rayong, Thailand and Albany, NY – November 4, 2014 -- Momentive Performance Materials Inc.
(“Momentive” or the “Company”) today commissioned two new expansions at its Rayong, Thailand
manufacturing facility to serve the growing Asian market demand for specialty chemicals.
Commissioning took place as part of part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the Rayong operations.


Momentive commissioned new liquid silicone rubber (LSR) production in Rayong that will serve
customers throughout Asia in the automotive, aerospace, energy, healthcare and consumer products
industries. Momentive is a pioneer in LSR and elastomer technology and continues to innovate and
evolve to meet today's demands and needs in end products ranging from high-voltage insulators and

operations are already an important production site for a number of the Company’s silicone and sealant
product lines.


The new capabilities include full automation, state-of-the-art process controls, and a new clean room to
help ensure that the highest quality standards are maintained in the production of Momentive’s LSR
offerings. Momentive will continue to provide customers around the world with the advanced
technology they need as well as capitalize on new market opportunities.


In addition to the LSR production, Momentive has also commissioned new release coating production
capabilities in Rayong. Momentive silicone-based release coatings are applied to paper or film to
produce liners that help protect the adhesive on tapes and labels prior to application. Momentive is a
global leader in release coatings with a broad product offering utilized in end products ranging from
thermal transfer tapes, to consumer product labels, stamps, diaper tabs, roofing shingles and industrial
tapes. The newly established capabilities in Rayong will provide Momentive with world-class capabilities
to supply high growth Pacific markets.
