Filed under: Carbon Black, Recovered Carbon Black — Notch @ 3:09 am

Bolder Industries (Boulder, Colorado) and Continental Carbon Company (Houston, Texas) this week announced a co-marketing agreement to commercialize a new line of Continental’s furnace black products that will incorporate Bolder Black’s recovered carbon black in the blend. This is a first in the carbon black industry and follows five years of research and development work, according to Bolder. The line will include N550, N650, N660, N762, and N774 grades, with markets in both the rubber and plastics markets. Customers will be able to select pre-blended fillers customized at various ratios. Bolder’s BolderBlack is produced from 100% post-consumer or post-industrial tires and rubber scrap. Continental Carbon is one of the largest carbon black producers in the United States.

“We have always believed in partnering with the traditional carbon black manufacturers to support the end customer. We can now provide a unique solution to tire companies, industrial rubber goods, and plastics manufacturers ​at a large scale,” said Tony Wibbeler, founder and CEO of Bolder Industries, in a press release announcing the venture. On October 27, 2020, Bolder Industries agreed to merge with GigCapital2, Inc. and become a publicly traded company.

“We have been impressed by the quality, consistency, and manufacturing prowess of Bolder Industries and strongly believe this is an​ important step toward a more profitable and sustainable future for the rubber and plastics industry. This strategic partnership allows us to offer soft-grade blends into a marketplace that desperately needs to provide a closed-loop solution,” said CCC President Dennis Hetu.
