CARBON BLACK, A WORLD OF DIFFERENT USES
Carbon blacks have special properties that can also be influenced by the method of manufacture and by varying the process parameters. This means they can be used in a broad range of application in diverse areas:
Tyres, rubber, friction linings and
technical rubber articles
- over 85% of carbon black is used as a filler in the rubber industry, primarily for car tyres. Reinforcing rubber is therefore the most important use of carbon black.
Dye, paint and compounds
- carbon black is used as a black pigment for printing inks, Indian inks, paints as well as for the manufacture and colouration of deep black plastics – especially as UV protection.
- another application involves carbon black in the concrete industry, or more specifically for colouring concrete products, concrete roof tiles and coloured asphalt.
Metallurgy, batteries, refractory, insulation and sheets
insulation and sheets
are further applications for carbon black.
