BOSTON, US: Cabot Corporation announced the completion of a significant investment to establish a new plastics applications development laboratory in Shanghai. The investment in plastics processing, testing capabilities and skilled technicians allows Cabot to better serve and collaborate with its customers in the China and Asia Pacific plastics industry.

The new Shanghai laboratory contains the latest technologies and testing equipment to provide global, best-in-class technical service. The lab is capable of application testing and development that closely represents Cabot’s customer applications. With this lab, Cabot can better meet the unique requirements of its China and Asia based customers across a range of critical applications including agricultural film and irrigation pipe, gas and water pressure pipe, wire and cable jacketing, extrusion, molding and compounding as well as conductive products for electrostatic discharge protection.

“Cabot’s deep understanding of carbon black properties and specialty masterbatch and compound formulations allows the company to deliver innovations across the plastics value chain. With the expanded laboratory, we will be able to respond more quickly to our Asia Pacific and global customers, expediting product support and facilitating new product development. This investment enhances our ability to provide differentiated products and services that enable the regional plastics industry to offer value-added solutions to their customers,” said Fei Deng, Vice President, Performance Materials, Asia Pacific, Cabot.
