SPECIALTY BLACKS FOR PLASTICS

Plastics must be colorfast, durable, and in some cases, highly conductive. Many end-use plastics rely on the unique properties of carbon black to deliver all of these performance characteristics. In some plastics applications, however, one performance attribute takes precedence in shaping the desired result. Whatever your need may be, our technical experts will help you find the right solution from our full spectrum of Raven® and Conductex® specialty carbon blacks.

PERFORMANCE FEATURES

COLOR

High, medium, or low surface area Raven carbon blacks are incorporated during the production of concentrates or compounds to impart your desired level of jetness or tint in plastics parts produced by molding, extrusion, or other processes.

PROTECTION

By converting UV radiation into heat, our Raven carbon blacks protect polymers such as polyolefins and engineering resins from degradation that would otherwise occur due to the absorption of radiation. This resistance to UV absorption from sunlight exposure contributes to improved weatherability and a longer life for your plastic product.

CONDUCTIVITY

Whether you require semi-conductivity for power cable shielding or electrostatic dissipation for sensitive electronics, our Conductex carbon blacks deliver the appropriate levels of conductivity to a range of plastic applications.

APPLICATIONS

CONDUCTIVE AND ELECTROSTATIC DISSIPATIVE (ESD)
Carefully crafted with tailored morphologies, our Conductex carbon blacks prevent electrical damage and provide the required level of conductivity for your resin system.

ENGINEERING PLASTICS
Fine particle Raven carbon blacks provide deep jetness, attractive tone, and gloss in your polyamide, polycarbonate, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene, and other high performance resins.

FIBER
Produce high quality synthetic fibers with Raven carbon blacks designed to help you achieve the desired color properties and cleanliness required for low filter pressure and to minimize fiber breaks.

FILM AND MOLDING
Choose from our range of Raven carbon blacks to incorporate excellent UV protection in industrial or consumer plastics. Our low-PAH products are suitable for food-contact applications.

PIPE
Protect pipes from mechanical degradation caused by harmful UV radiation with our Raven P-type carbon blacks. Their excellent chemical and physical purity delivers compounds with low moisture pickup and smooth extruded surface finish.

WIRE AND CABLE
Extend cable life by creating exceptionally smooth and conductive insulation, conductor shield, and UV resistant jacketing compounds with our Conductex and Raven carbon blacks.
