SHANGHAI, CHINA: Cabot Corporation (CBT) has opened its new Asia technology centre in Shanghai, China. The investment will enhance Cabot’s application development capabilities and will provide a state-of-the-art collaboration platform to deliver innovative solutions to customers throughout Asia Pacific.

The lab will support Cabot product lines including rubber and speciality carbons, fumed metal oxides, masterbatch and compounds, activated carbon and inkjet colourants with testing and development capabilities that closely represent Cabot’s customer applications.
