Carbon black has a wide range of uses across an array of applications in three markets – specialty, mechanical rubber goods and tires. It is vital to rubber products for reinforcement. In the specialty market, carbon black also plays an important role as a black pigment to impart jetness in inks and coatings as well as blackness, UV protection and conductivity in plastics. For select niche applications, including adhesives, sealants, ceramics and glass, carbon black’s properties can enhance appearance, electrical conductivity and protection from environmental stresses.
