Indus­tri­al­ly manu­fac­tu­red Car­bon black is pro­du­ced by pyro­ly­sis of hydro­car­bons at high tem­pe­ra­tures under con­trol­led pro­cess con­di­ti­ons. Due to the pro­duc­tion pro­cess, traces of poly­cy­clic aro­ma­tic hydro­car­bons (PAH) exist, which are bond­ed to the surface.

Car­bon black is a sub­stan­ti­al com­po­nent of most rub­ber goods and pla­s­tic appli­ca­ti­ons, play­ing an important role in the per­for­mance pro­per­ties to the final product.

Various regu­la­ti­ons sti­pu­la­te the limi­ta­ti­on of PAHs in pro­ducts and the envi­ron­ment. Legis­la­ti­ve bodies around the world are cal­ling for lower levels of PAHs in con­su­mer artic­les such as sport­ing equip­ment, house­hold items, tools, clot­hing, foot­wear, access­ories, toys and child­ca­re items. In addi­ti­on, regu­la­ti­ons are in place to rest­rict the PAH con­tent for car­bon blacks used in rub­ber parts that come into cont­act with food and drin­king water.

In respon­se to mar­ket requi­re­ments, Pen­ta­Car­bon GmbH offers high per­for­mance blacks which com­ply to low PAH limits and FDA requi­re­ments, but also meet strin­gent per­for­mance requi­re­ments for the final pro­duct. The gra­des are well sui­ted for the pro­duc­tion of con­su­mer goods, food cont­act mate­ri­als and for piping and gas­kets used for drin­king water.
