Jiangxi, China - Cabot Corp. and joint venture partner China National Bluestar Group have competed their fumed silica expansion project at the Spark Industrial Park in Jiangxi Province, China. The Jiangxi site can now produce up to 15,000 metric tons of product annually, with the near term potential to further expand to 20,000 metric tons.
The two companies began expansion on the project in September 2010. Cabot says it is one of the world's largest producers of fumed silica.
Fumed silica is a collection of very-fine non-porous particles that increase the performance of many applications, including silicones, adhesives, toners, composites and coatings. Cabot sells many of its fumed silica products under the Cab-O-Sil brand, both untreated and treated.
