Birla Carbon’s surface treated carbon blacks can provide you with unmatched color and gloss performance while minimizing impact on rheological properties and through-cure.

In order to keep viscosity low and maximize pigment loading in the concentrate, Raven carbon blacks feature low oil absorption and our proprietary surface treatment process. Consequently, the superior dispersion which can be obtained will maximize gloss and depth of color. In addition, their high purity allows them to meet various regulatory requirements seen in many ink applications.

Areas of Benefits:

highpurity

HIGH PURITY

Birla Carbon offers a wide variety of carbon blacks for energy-curables which provide low PAH and metals content to meet the growing regulatory requirements of your formulation.

rheology

RHEOLOGY STABILITY

Due to UV and EB ink’s unique chemistry, they can be susceptible to poor flow and thickening over time with low quality pigments. Our unique surface treatment coupled with low ash result in predicable viscosity which gives your customers confidence with in-can stability.

speedofcure

SPEED OF CURE

Birla Carbon has a wide variety of surface areas which allows you to properly balance color performance with the UV reactivity of your ink or coating.
