Carbon Black for printing ink

Fur­nace car­bon blacks are main­ly used for prin­ting inks, as this manu­fac­tu­ring pro­cess offers the most varia­ti­on pos­si­bi­li­ties in terms of pri­ma­ry par­tic­les, sur­face and struc­tu­re. This means that a sui­ta­ble car­bon black gra­de is available for almost every appli­ca­ti­on. The pig­ment car­bon blacks pro­du­ced by the fur­nace pro­cess are often cha­rac­te­ri­zed by low struc­tu­re values, which leads to a desi­red gloss of the for­mu­la­ti­on. As in the field of pla­s­tics, car­bon blacks with low PAH values and ele­men­tal impu­ri­ties are also used.
