Cabot's technical solutions help our customers build materials for pipes, bridges, residential homes, commercial buildings, and more. Cabot's specialty carbons and fumed silicas are the performance materials of choice in many construction applications, ranging from adhesives and sealants to coatings, electric cables and silicones. Our products deliver superior strength and allow manufacturers to create high-performance composites for the most demanding applications, such as wind turbines and pipelines, while lowering costs and improving performance. Our light-weight Cabot aerogel provides insulating properties two to four times greater than traditional materials. Used in diverse applications, Cabot aerogel helps meet ever-more-stringent LEED construction standards. We're excited and proud of our collaborative efforts with companies on the leading edge of building and infrastructure design.
Cabot helps manufacturers improve the performance, safety and lifespan of transportation vehicles and their components. No matter the challenge, Cabot takes great pride in finding the right solutions for our customers' needs. Our rubber additives, used to extend the life of tires, brake pads and other components, frequently set new performance standards in the industry. Our products also provide strength to adhesives and sealants, beauty to automotive-based coatings, and advances in emerging energy sources such as lithium-ion batteries. With our activated carbon portfolio, we also remove gasoline vapors and purify cabin air, helping our customers achieve world-class emissions standards. We continually apply our application know-how and expertise to help our customers in new ways.
Cabot takes pride in collaborating with customers focused on a greener tomorrow. We deliver innovation that helps our customers conserve energy, advance emerging energy sources, and protect the environment. Our innovative spirit is based on a willingness to test assumptions. We are the first company to produce, at full scale, aerogel products that are now found in energy-efficient commercial and residential buildings around the world. We also invented cesium formate drilling fluids, which help safely deliver high-pressure, high-temperature oil and gas from wells. Our Cabot Norit Activated Carbon products help purify air, liquids and gas, including the most widely used products to meet new emissions standards in the U.S. for removing mercury from coal-fired utility flue gas. Meanwhile, we are delivering solutions to help customers enter the wind energy market. Cabot is a partner that can help design products that respect the environment - and the people who live in it.
Cabot is an essential part of modern-day life. Many of the things you touch, see, and even eat and drink have Cabot as part of its chemical make-up. The sleek color palettes on your latest tablets and mobile communication devices likely depend on Cabot's specialty carbons and fumed silicas. Many of the products you buy or carry may be protected by Cabot's covert taggants - hard-to-replicate particles that help verify a material's authenticity, and are used by many of the world's leading banks and consumer companies. In your home or work office, your printer likely includes Cabot's inkjet pigments, which help create vivid, clear colors. Many of your packaged foods and beverages have improved taste and purity due to Cabot Norit Activated Carbon.
Many of our industry-changing breakthroughs come from our Cabot Labs. Our engineers, scientists and researchers are experts in the fields of nano-materials, surface chemistry, and particle and additives development. We all understand that a good idea only has value if we can take it from the lab floor to the real world. In applying our expertise to our customers' most demanding challenges, we have built a record of R&D accomplishment - creating major performance breakthroughs in elastomer composites, inkjet colorants and chemical mechanical polishing slurries. Today, we are working on creating tomorrow's opportunities. In product technology, we are developing new materials for tires, additives for windmill blades, delivery materials for pharmaceuticals, and graphenes. In process technology, we are finding ways improve energy efficiency, reduce emissions, and recycle water and gas. Our global R&D network gives our customers the full depth of our technical expertise, with local support to help them meet their new challenges.Back To Top
