Special Carbon Black

Special carbon blacks are required in various applications such as plastics, printing inks, fibres, seals and construction applications. Here they are largely responsible for performance UV protection, conductivity and colouristics.

Please note that some industrial carbon blacks are only available in powder form, some in beaded form and some in both forms.

Conductive carbon black

The use of conductive carbon blacks is the most reliable and cost-effective choice for the production of conductive compounds. Our portfolio includes semi-conductive, conductive and super-conductive carbon blacks.

Gas black

Gas blacks are particularly clean industrial carbon blacks produced by the cracking of acetylene gas. Typically used in batteries, paints, cables and conductive compounds.

Flame black

Flame blacks are used in paints, plastics and various special applications. Due to their high structural values, these types of carbon black are particularly easy to disperse and have unique colour characteristics.

Industrial carbon black with low levels of PAH

Industrial carbon black with low levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. According to various market regulations, some applications (household goods, tools, inks, plastics and selected rubber articles) require a limited concentration of PAHs. Our portfolio includes various industrial carbon blacks which comply with the regulations EC 10/2011, Oekotex 100 Standard and FDA 21 CFR 178.3297.

Pigment carbon black

Industrial carbon black is used in many applications as pigment carbon black. By modifying various carbon black properties, it is possible to achieve different properties of the end product such as colour strength, viscosity, colour shade, UV resistance and dispersibility.

Industrial carbon black for fibres

A fibre carbon black is mainly responsible for colour and UV resistance.
Industrial carbon blacks with special micro-dispersibility are required for good spinning properties.

Thermal carbon black

Thermal blacks are gas blacks with the largest particle size combined with the lowest surface area and structure. Due to the fact that natural gas is the raw material for thermal carbon black, it is a very pure carbon black.
