We create materials that improve battery life, performance and safety through technology innovation and customer-oriented solutions.


For 140 years we have collaborated with our customers to drive innovation forward as a leader in conductive carbons and fumed metal oxide additives. The global trend of electrification requires lithium-ion (Li-Ion) batteries to deliver higher performance, safety and reliability at the same time. Our portfolio features a wide range of solutions to address such technical challenges, including conductive carbons, carbon nanotubes, carbon nanostructures, fumed silica, fumed alumina and aerogel.

Engineers and designers of Li-Ion and advanced lead-acid batteries use our performance additives to improve the durability and performance of batteries for electric vehicles, consumer electronics and grid-level electricity storage. 

Our global footprint and a strong focus on sustainability will support the growth of our customers.
