New Cabot Products at European Coatings Show 2011

Article Type: Industrial news From: Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials, Volume 58, Issue 4

Cabot Corporation, the global leader in speciality chemicals, is introducing two new products to the European coatings industry at the 2011 European Coatings Show alongside its extensive portfolio of products for the paint and coatings industry.

Designed specifically for use in water-borne base-coats, EMPEROR® 1800 is the latest addition to Cabot’s range of carbon black pigmentation products. As it produces a jet-black colour with a high degree of stability while also reducing dispersion time and overall formulation costs, it is a major advance in this sector.

Cabot’s carbon blacks are widely used to provide pigmentation, UV protection and conductivity in high-performance aqueous and solvent-based coatings for the automotive industry, architectural structures, industrial plant and many other demanding applications.

Cabot is also launching EnovaTM aerogel, a high-performance thermal insulation additive for coatings, at ECS 2011. Aerogel is the world’s most effective insulating solid, and the Enova product range enables significant improvements in energy usage, asset protection, safety and comfort to be achieved. It is a durable material and can easily be incorporated into coatings with standard production methods (Figure 1).

Cabot continues to develop its range of CAB-O-SIL® and SpectrAl® treated fumed silicas and aluminas, which are already widely used to improve performance criteria such as free-flow, fluidisation, tribocharging, rheology and abrasion-resistance.
