Carbon Black

Carbon Black

Carbon Black is a major reinforcing filler used in rubber compounds. The most common use (70%) of carbon black is as a pigment and reinforcing phase in automobile tires. Carbon black also helps conduct heat away from the tread and belt area of the tire, reducing thermal damage and increasing tire life. Specialty Carbon Blacks are known for the difficult-to-achieve properties like UV resistance, better dispersion in polymer matrix, conductivity, high color strength and aesthetics.
