This versatile product, has a wide range of applications when used as a filler to modify mechanical, electrical and optical properties of the medium in which it is dispersed. Carbon Black adds different properties to the mould it is dispersed in, for instance when added to rubber these fillers modify fracture behaviour, improve abrasion and fracture properties, but when compounded to plastics, the black adds UV protection, electrical conductance, Jetness, opacity and reinforcement.
