We understand the challenges with compound formulation for each unique belt application.
Our portfolio of high performance carbon blacks enables compounders and belt manufacturers to tailor properties for excellence in processing, heat build-up and durability. Our products offer:
- Unique morphologies enabling lower energy, faster mixing, improved processing and dispersion
- Engineered distributions of particle size and structure for improved dynamic properties and durability
- Low residue levels to maximize fatigue resistance
- Electrical conductivity to dissipate static charges
Our belt solutions can help you overcome these common challenges
Our wide range of tailored morphology products provide fast incorporation and complete dispersion to maximize compounding efficiency while delivering the targeted reinforcement levels for a wide range of belt compounds.
Our comprehensive range of ASTM and unique morphology products enables the optimized balance of hardness, tensile strength and abrasion resistance for top cover and carcass applications to consistently ensure on-target compound performance.
Our pioneering work in the reduction of residue gives you the ability to produce belt components with dramatically reduced crack initiation sites to ensure long fatigue life under harsh dynamic/flexing cycles.
Our tailored morphology products featuring engineered particle and aggregate size distributions enable the simultaneous optimization of hysteresis and mechanical properties. This can be applied to the design of belts for lower energy consumption, higher durability or a combination of these two properties.
Our tailored morphology products allow for a high degree of control over the electrical conductivity of a compound through control of the percolation threshold without sacrifices in rolling resistance, durability or mechanical properties.
