New distribution agreement between Univar Solutions and Cabot
The agreement builds on the companies’ existing relationship. Cabot’s specialty carbon black products are used for multiple applications in the automotive market, including helping improve the efficiency, durability, performance and lifetime of hybrid and electric vehicle batteries. In addition to batteries, the versatility of carbon black products make them well-suited for other specialty applications such as plastics, consumer electronics and industrial parts, delivering value through a range of functionalities including colour, ultraviolet (UV) protection, surface smoothness and conductivity.
“As we continue growing our ingredients and specialties business in Latin America, it’s critical that we partner with world-class suppliers who are also committed to helping meet customers’ product performance needs while keeping sustainability top-of-mind. The addition of Cabot’s specialty carbon black products to our expansive product portfolio allows us to better serve those looking to innovate, grow and differentiate their business,” said Jorge Buckup, president of Latin America for Univar Solutions.
“Customers will benefit”
“We’re excited about our collaboration with Cabot in Brazil, which further expands a key supplier relationship and adds to our product offering to our customer base,” said Chris Fitzgerald, global vice president, CASE, Rubber and Plastic Additives for Univar Solutions. “We are confident our customers will benefit from the consistent focus we bring within the plastic compounding and battery markets, backed by strong local and technical support and commercial excellence.”
