Carbon Black for Paint & Varnish

In paints and coa­tings, car­bon black is essen­ti­al­ly used as a black pig­ment to pro­du­ce colors in a spec­trum from gray to deep black. The 3 main pro­per­ties: pri­ma­ry par­tic­le size, sur­face and struc­tu­re are main­ly respon­si­ble for opa­ci­ty, color loca­ti­on and gloss. In addi­ti­on to pig­ment and gas blacks, fla­me blacks are also used, which pro­du­ce a bluish undertone.
