VISCOSITY

Our range of low structure carbon blacks allow formulators to increase pigment loadings to improve thin film opacity while maintaining desired flow properties during handling and application.

cleanliness

CLEANLINESS

Carbon blacks from our Ultra product line minimize physical contaminant levels to reduce equipment wear and improve maintenance costs. Where regulatory standards are a concern, Raven products are produced utilizing process technology that reduces polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and heavy metal contaminations.
