Cabot Corporation operates as a specialty chemicals and performance materials company. The company’s has operations in the United States and approximately 20 other countries. Segments The company operates in four business segments: Reinforcement Materials; Performance Materials; Advanced Technologies; and Purification Solutions. REINFORCEMENT MATERIALS The Reinforcement Materials segment offers carbon black, which is a form of elemental carbon that is manufactured in a controlled process to produce particles and aggregates of varied structure and surface chemistry. Rubber grade carbon blacks are used to enhance the physical properties of the systems and applications in which they are incorporated. The company’s rubber blacks products are used in tires and industrial products. Rubber blacks have traditionally been used in the tire industry as a rubber reinforcing agent and are also used as a performance additive. In industrial products, such as hoses, belts, extruded profiles and molded goods, rubber blacks are used to improve the physical performance of the product. Sales and Customers: The company’s sales of rubber blacks products are made by its employees and through distributors and sales representatives. Its products are sold to customers in North America and Western Europe. PERFORMANCE MATERIALS The Performance Materials segment comprises two businesses that sell the following products: specialty grades of carbon black and thermoplastic concentrates and compounds (its Specialty Carbons and Compounds Business); and fumed silica, fumed alumina and dispersions thereof (its Fumed Metal Oxides Business). In each business, the company designs, manufactures, and sells materials that deliver performance in a range of customer applications across the automotive, construction and infrastructure, and electronics and consumer products sectors. Products The company’s specialty grades of carbon black are used to impart color, provide rheology control, improve conductivity and static charge control, provide UV protection, improve mechanical properties, and provide chemical flexibility through surface treatment. These products are used in various applications, such as inks, coatings, cables, pipes, toners, and electronics. In addition, the company manufactures and sources thermoplastic concentrates and compounds (specialty compounds) that are marketed to the plastics industry. Fumed silica is an ultra-fine, high-purity particle used as a reinforcing, thickening, abrasive, thixotropic, suspending or anti-caking agent in various products for the automotive, construction, microelectronics, and consumer products industries. These products include adhesives, sealants, cosmetics, inks, toners, silicone rubber, coatings, polishing slurries, and pharmaceuticals. Fumed alumina, also an ultra-fine, high-purity particle, is used as an abrasive, absorbent or barrier agent in various products, such as inkjet media, lighting, coatings, cosmetics, and polishing slurries. Sales of these products are made by Cabot employees and through distributors and sales representatives. The company produces specialty compounds in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES The Advanced Technologies segment comprises its inkjet colorants, aerogel, security materials, elastomer composites, and specialty fluids businesses. Inkjet Colorants Business Products The company produces and sells aqueous inkjet colorants primarily to the inkjet printing market. Its inkjet colorants are pigment-based black and color dispersions based on its patented surface modification technology. The dispersions are used in aqueous inkjet inks to impart color (optical density or chroma), sharp print characteristics and durability (waterfastness, lightfastness, and rub resistance). The company’s inkjet colorants serve various inkjet printing applications, including small office and home office, corporate office, and commercial printing, as well as other niche applications that require a high level of dispersibility and colloidal stability. The company also sells inks with its pigment based colorant dispersions into the emerging
