Adhesives & Sealants
Our performance additives are used in many chemistries including epoxies, vinylesters, acrylics, polyurethanes and cyanoacrylates.
Our products are used as rheology modifiers in adhesive applications including structural automotive, wind blades, electronics and room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone.
We consistently meet the challenges of adhesive and sealant manufacturers that demand additives that boost the performance of their products. Our global reach enables us to partner closely with our customers to deliver the highest standards for performance, quality and service. We strive to be our customers’ commercial partner of choice and have been a leading manufacturer of performance materials for more than 100 years.
Our specialty carbon blacks provide reinforcement, conductivity and rheological properties to a variety of water-based and solvent-based adhesives formulations. Our product portfolio spans a range of particle sizes and structures to impart different performance characteristics to adhesives formulations.
CAB-O-SIL® fumed silica provides reinforcement and rheology properties to epoxy and polyurethane adhesives and sealant systems for an array of applications including structural and elastic bonding, commonly used in wind turbine blades, and industrial and automotive assembly. Our CAB-O-SPERSE® fumed silica dispersions impart strength to pressure-sensitive adhesive formulations.
