As of 7 December 2015, BCD Chemie GmbH will act as Cabot GmbH’s distributor in Switzerland in the "performance chemicals" sector for fumed silica (including Cab-O-Sil®) and specialty carbon blacks for the BLACK PEARLS®, MONARCH®, ELFTEX®, MOGUL®, REGAL®, EMPOROR® and VULCAN® brand names.

The products can be used for a variety of applications, e.g. in coatings, plastics, adhesives and printing inks.

For many years, BCD Chemie has been successful in distributing fumed silica for Cabot in Germany under the brand names Cab-O-Sil® and SPECTRAL® in addition to Cab-O-Sperse® silica dispersions.

The expansion of distribution operations in the "performance chemicals" sector is a fitting complement to BCD Chemie’s already extensive product portfolio in Switzerland.
