With Monday's announcement of the sale of CeramTec to a private equity buyer, Rockwood has taken a major step toward that vision. While I would have preferred to see Rockwood keep CeramTec, the company got a good price and should be relatively close to a sale of the titanium dioxide and performance additives businesses, which will free the company to repay debt and pursue M&A to beef up the surface treatments operations.
