Specialty Carbon Blacks

Cabot is a leading manufacturer of specialty carbon blacks. Our products improve the performance of plastics across a number of applications while extending their useful life.

Specialty carbon black for molded parts
We offer a range of specialty carbon blacks that provide superior color for molded parts used in the consumer, industrial and automotive markets, suitable for a wide range of polymers ranging from polyolefins to engineering thermoplastics. 

Specialty carbon blacks for food contacts applications in plastics
We have designed a range of specialty carbon blacks that meet strict food contact requirements, including those established by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Commission. Our specialty carbon blacks also offer exceptional color and opacity.

Specialty carbon blacks for conductive and ESD applications in plastics
We offer a range of specialty conductive carbon blacks that provide conductive or electrostatic dissipative (ESD) performance in plastics. 

Specialty carbon black for wire and cables
Cabot’s VULCAN® XC specialty carbon blacks have been specifically designed to provide high performance around conductivity and cleanliness to enable the long-term performance of electrical cables

Specialty carbons for the plastic pressure pipe industry 
We are one of the leaders in the development of high purity specialty carbon blacks defined as “p-types” that, when compounded using internationally recognized.

Electrically conductive compounds and concentrates

We are a global leader in formulating electrically conductive compounds. All of our CABELEC® product solutions are manufactured to high quality standards desired by processors and compounders.

  • CABELEC® conductive compounds
Our line of electrically conductive compounds encompasses a complete range for use in the automotive, packaging, industrial and medical industries. 

  • CABELEC® conductive concentrates
Our range encompasses polystyrene (PS), polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE) based concentrates which enable processors to design and mold electrically conductive plastics. CABELEC® conductive concentrates feature:
o    Flexibility in designing conductive parts to the required performance level
o    A single concentrate for different polymer types, process types and applications
o    Multiple dilutions of the concentrate possible, depending on the conductivity level required
o    Additional saving potential in overall raw material costs

Carbon Nanostructures-based compounds: We offer Carbon Nanostructures- based compounds for EMI shielding that is becoming increasingly important in automotive electronics. The major applications are critical electronics systems like ECUs and power management modules which are typically housed in metallic enclosures.
