As a leading global specialty chemicals and performance materials company, we offer world-class research and development expertise. We design particle solutions that deliver value for specific applications across diverse industries and end-uses.
In addition to offering our broad portfolio of particle solutions, we work closely with our customers to solve complex materials problems. We do this by leveraging our competencies in material science, surface engineering, characterization, global production scale and application expertise to find solutions that break functional trade-offs. Our broad experience includes a number of functional material properties. We encourage you to learn more about what we can deliver through the application of our materials.
Our Functional Property Expertise
We offer a variety of materials for a balanced mix of traction, durability, high rigidity, flex resistance, tear strength and stability depending on the application.
Rheology control is important in molded plastic products for automotive parts, as well as for products that are fluid, such as paint, adhesives and sealants, inks and skin and beauty care.
Our electrically conductive carbon blacks have been shown to greatly reduce the risk of catastrophic discharge of electrostatic energy when added to formulated compounds.
Increasing thermal conductivity, determined by the rate of heat transfer through a material, can help move heat away from sensitive parts.
Electromagnetic Interference Shielding
Electromagnetic fields that can interrupt or limit the performance of circuits within electronic devices can be effectively shielded using barriers with conductive or magnetic properties.
