Birla Carbon offers Conductex e carbon blacks as a complete portfolio of conductive additives for lead acid battery negative electrodes to enable battery manufacturers to meet the growing charge acceptance, cycle life, and water loss needs of consumers. These products provide the required conductivity and purity levels while enabling manufacturers the formulation flexibility needed to meet sustainability targets in a variety of lead acid battery applications, including automotive, telecom, motive power, energy storage systems, and e-bikes. Our unique Conductex e products offer:

  • Increased dynamic charge acceptance (DCA)
  • Extremely high purity which meets or exceeds the rigorous requirements of lead-acid battery applications
  • Increased cycle life coupled with reduced water loss during partial state of charge (PSoC) operation
  • Enhanced formulation flexibility due to wide range of available particle sizes and tailored surface chemistries
  • Ease of dispersibility enables high battery uniformity

Our Conductex e lead acid battery solutions can help you overcome these common challenges

Charge Acceptance icon


Our Conductex e line of conductive carbon blacks provide high conductivity and a morphology tailored to enable the fast-recharging performance required of start-stop and micro-hybrid applications. This performance is critical for meeting the sustainability goals and fuel savings targets of many automotive manufacturers.

Cold Cranking Power Icon


Our conductive carbon additives are designed to provide a robust electrical network which allows advanced lead acid batteries to meet their power requirements in the extreme cold temperatures necessary for automotive and e-bike applications while maintaining battery durability.

Cycle Life Icon


Our Conductex e performance carbon blacks have high purity and tailored surface chemistry which deliver consistent battery performance even during deep cycle as well as partial state of charge operation. This extends the product lifetime and reduces overall cost of ownership making a more sustainable product possible.

Gassing and Water Loss Icon


Our Conductex e line of carbon black conductive additives have a tailored particle morphology and high purity which reduces the side reactions that cause gassing and water loss. This reduction of water loss helps both flooded and valve regulated batteries and can increase the battery lifetime while lowering maintenance requirements.

Uniform Dispersion icon


Our selection of performance conductive carbons is designed to easily be incorporated into the paste mix using simple dry mixing or pre-wetting methods without the need for predispersed liquid systems. This allows better use of the active material through a robust conductive network and increases the overall battery performance and reliability.

Our products alleviate challenges by providing:

  • Improved electrical conductivity that meets the power and performance needs of advanced lead acid batteries even at low temperatures
  • High purity levels that reduce gassing during charge and increase life cycle
  • Formulation flexibility and ease of dispersion which improves battery uniformity and ease of processing
