Using Car­bon Black in paints and coa­tings, for pig­ment pur­po­ses, is a tech­ni­que that has been used by humans sin­ce the ear­ly civi­liza­ti­ons. Initi­al­ly, car­bon black was only used to color inks, but this tech­ni­que has been fur­ther deve­lo­ped to this day. From gene­ra­ti­on to gene­ra­ti­on, Car­bon Black has been used for paints and coa­tings. Spe­ci­fi­cal­ly with colors, it is very important to reach the exact sha­de of black.

In many appli­ca­ti­ons, Car­bon Black is used as a black pig­ment, to achie­ve a spec­trum ran­ging from gray to deep black. By the modi­fi­ca­ti­on of dif­fe­rent car­bon black pro­per­ties it is pos­si­ble to reach requi­red pro­per­ties for the final pro­duct like tin­ting strength, vis­co­si­ty, sha­de, UV-resis­­tance and dipersability.

The majo­ri­ty of pig­ment car­bon blacks are pro­du­ced in the fur­nan­ce car­bon black pro­cess, as this pro­duc­tion pro­cess allows the big­gest pos­si­bi­li­ties to vary the 3 main pro­per­ties of car­bon black: pri­ma­ry par­tic­le size, sur­face area and the struc­tu­re of car­bon black, tail­o­red to the desi­red appli­ca­ti­on. New ink, coa­ting and poly­mer for­mu­la­ti­ons con­ti­nous­ly increase the per­for­mance requi­re­ments of Car­bon blacks.

Lamp black is also popu­lar due to ist bluish under­to­ne. This bluish under­to­ne is very popu­lar in the pro­duc­tion of a black or gray color, becau­se of the many-face­­ted varia­ti­ons that result from it.
