Cabot Bluestar Chemical Co. Ltd. Increases Fumed Silica Production in Jiangxi, China

april 23 2012

Cabot Corporation CBT and joint venture partner China National Bluestar Group announced the completion of its new fumed silica expansion project at the Spark Industrial Park in Jiangxi Province, China. Fumed silica is a collection of very-fine non-porous particles that increase the performance of many applications, including silicones, adhesives, toners, composites and coatings. Cabot sells many of its fumed silica products under the CAB-O-SIL(R) brand, both untreated and treated.

The facility incorporates the industry's most advanced manufacturing technologies to produce a broad range of highly pure, electronics-grade fumed silica for key growth segments including silicone parts for automotive and industrial applications, composite parts such as windmill blades, automotive panels and boat hulls, and electronics applications such as CMP slurries, solar panel adhesives and electrophoretic toners.

"This site demonstrates the power of collaboration between our companies," said Patrick Prevost, Cabot president and chief executive officer. "In working closely together, Cabot and Bluestar are finding new ways to create enabling products for our customers through sustainable manufacturing technologies."
