Biographies

Union Carbide Australia Ltd was established in the mid 1950s, after USA company Union Carbide purchased New South Wales based Timbrol Ltd. Union carbide Australia Ltd ceased operations in 1985. Factors contributing to the closure were the reduced supply of raw materials and competition from other Australian chemical manufacturers.
