Cabot Corporation (NYSE: CBT) announces that Principal Scientist Dr. Angelos Kyrlidis will speak at IDTechEx Graphene LIVE! USA 2013. The international conference and tradeshow covering the applications and latest technology developments of graphene will take place Nov. 20-21, 2013, in Santa Clara, Calif. Dr. Kyrlidis will share his industry expertise and perspective in his presentation titled “Engineering Functional Carbon Additives for Various Applications: From Carbon Black to Graphenes.” The presentation will focus on how Cabot has developed functional carbon additives that play an important role for a variety of applications that are driving growth in key industries. The morphology and surface chemistry of these products define their performance (reinforcement, color, electrical conductivity, rheology, etc.). Dr. Kyrlidis will provide some examples from Cabot’s experience working with graphene technology illustrating that:
- Graphene materials are a new family of carbon products that have remarkable properties that hold significant promise and may enable many applications.
- For these new materials to become commercially successful, they must be designed to deliver superior performance and be produced at the right scale for these applications.
