We understand the challenges with compound formulation and conversion processes for the variety of hose applications.
Our portfolio of high performance carbon blacks enables compounders and hose manufacturers to tailor properties for excellence in processing, appearance, durability and fluid resistance. Our products offer:
- Unique morphologies enabling lower energy, faster mixing and improved dispersion
- Low residue for defect-free surfaces, extended screen life and improved fatigue resistance
- Tailored morphologies to meet compound electrical resistivity/conductivity specifications
Our hose solutions can help you overcome these common challenges
CLASS A SURFACE FINISH
Our pioneering work in the reduction of grit and other impurities gives you the ability to produce defect free Class A surface finishes for access to higher value markets. This technology has the added benefit of reduced extruder screen changes to improve processing efficiency.
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 wide range of tailored morphology products allows for flexibility in compounding to achieve optimum rheology and extrusion control for various hose compounds while balancing other critical performance reinforcement parameters and compound economics.
Our comprehensive range of ASTM and unique morphology products enables the optimized balance of hardness, tensile strength and elongation at break for various hose applications to consistently ensure on-target compound performance.
Our uniquely designed products enable high resistivity at high loadings while maintaining required levels of reinforcement. Such products can be used to address increasingly stringent OEM specifications for compound electrical resistivity, for example when formulating for electrochemical degradation (ECD) resistant compounds for coolant hoses.
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 key mechanical properties.
