Rubber products maker signs additives offtake deal with Origin Materials

July 25, 2022 |

In California, synthetic rubber distributor Intertex World Resources, Inc. has signed an agreement to purchase renewable carbon black made from hydrothermal carbon (HTC) produced by Origin Materials. 

The 100% biobased filler and pigment is made from wood residues at lower carbon emissions and fossil fuels than incumbent materials.  

The material will be used for tires, belts, hoses, rubber seals, plastic extrusion, and all other mechanical rubber goods markets. Origin and Intertex will also work to develop a carbon black for automotive seal customers requiring high performance carbon blacks for rubber window seals.

 “The world is looking for sustainable replacements for fossil-fuel based products, including carbon black, and we look forward to being at the front of this effort with Origin to bring those products to our valued customers,” says Greg Sibley, Managing Partner for Intertex. “With our markets in tires, belts, hoses, and other mechanical rubber goods, all of which are looking for sustainable raw materials, we believe this partnership will allow us to give our customers a decided market advantage.”
