Cabot expands black masterbatch business

Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 10:10 pm

Last week, Cabot announced the completion of two projects — an acquisition and an expansion — that will extend its global footprint in black masterbatch and compounds and increase manufacturing capacity for these materials.

Cabot recently completed the acquisition of Tech Blend, a leading North American producer of black masterbatches, which will now operate as Cabot Plastics Canada, LP a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cabot Corporation within Cabot’s global Specialty Compounds business.

Cabot’s Specialty Compounds business has completed the installation of a new line at its manufacturing facility in Pepinster, Belgium. This strategic investment will increase capacity and enhance production capabilities for plastic formulations, including conductive and engineering thermoplastics formulations. With this additional capacity, the Pepinster site is now the largest masterbatch and compounds manufacturing facility in Cabot’s network.
