  • Carbon Black Pigments for Coatings
    Specialty Carbon Blacks are used in paints and coatings for mass tone coloration, tinting of white and colored coatings, including decorative paints, and for transparent coloration. For mass tone coloration of solvent-borne coatings, the use of fine particle sized oxidized gas blacks (HCG (o) / MCG (o)) and oxidized furnace blacks (HCF) are preferred. Untreated fine particle sized gas and furnace blacks (HCG/HCF) are also used in water-borne coatings for reasons of pH stability.

  • Carbon Black Pigments for Printing Inks
    The most important features of Specialty Carbon Black are the size of the pigment primary particles and the structure of the aggregates. These parameters define the colorimetric properties such as undertone, optical density, gloss and also the rheological effect of Specialty Carbon Blacks and their dispersibility in binders.
