Specialty Blacks for Niche Applications

The unique properties of our Raven® and Conductex® carbon blacks make them well-suited for a variety of highly specialized applications. Such uses depend on specialty carbon blacks to enhance appearance, provide protection from the elements, supply electrical conductivity, or act as a source of elemental carbon. Our applications experts will help you find the optimal solution from our complete spectrum of Raven and Conductex carbon blacks, no matter how particular your challenge may be.

APPLICATIONS

ADHESIVES AND SEALANTS
Adapt the color and rheology of automotive and architectural adhesives and sealants. Powder carbon blacks are usually preferred in these applications.

BATTERY
Improve electrochemical conductivity and charging characteristics in lead-acid, modern stop-start, and hybrid batteries.

CERAMICS AND GLASS
Impart greater conductivity and precisely adjust color. Specialty blacks are also used as a foaming agent in insulating glass.

CONCRETE AND MORTAR
Add rich color and protection from the elements.

EXPANDED AND EXTRUDED POLYSTYRENE INSULATION
Improve the foaming process and modify radiative thermal behavior.

FRICTION MATERIALS
Modify the surface friction of brake pads and clutch plates while providing exceptional thermal conductivity to extend product life.

METALLURGICAL 
Upgrade casting operations with sacrificial anti-oxidant layers and mold release for alloy working. Carbon black also serves as a carbon donor for steel alloys and as a carbon source during carbide production.

MULCH 
Add rich, long-lasting color to landscaping materials.

PAPER 
Provide color and image transfer properties.

PIGMENT DISPERSIONS 
Enhance appearance and protection in the full breadth of resin systems including nitrocellulose, polyurethane, acrylic, polyester, vinyl, and CAB.

REFRACTORY 
Deliver thermal management, thermal shock prevention, and adjust density.

ROOFING GRANULES 
Grant rich color and protection from the elements.

SOLID CARBON
Consistently achieve the optimal balance of mechanical properties, conductivity, and corrosion resistance for applications like carbon brush manufacturing.
