Carbon Black

Carbon Black

Soot is one of the oldest products produced by mankind. The history of its use goes back centuries, when the Chinese and Indians used this substance as a pigment in ink. However, after the 16th century, with the expansion of the printing industry, the importance of this material increased. The term carbon black  refers to a group of products that are composed of carbon atoms. But industrial grade is different from ordinary carbon black.

Industrial Grade

It is produced under controlled conditions and for specific uses, and more than 98% of its composition is carbon. While ordinary soot is an unwanted by-product. It is a material that is not only of interest to those who deal with industry, but has been able to attract the attention of many researchers and academics all over the world. This product is widely used as a filler to change the mechanical, electrical and light transmission properties in the environments to which it is added, and as a result, it plays an important role in the properties of elastomers, plastics, paint, ink and rubber. For example, this substance in plastics increases protection against ultraviolet rays. It is a good conductor in thermoplastic polymers and when it is used as a filler in rubber, it improves parameters such as erosion, abrasion, scratches and breakage. Therefore, it can be said that carbon black is a carbon with a purity of more than 98% consisting of tiny particles and having an amorphous molecular structure.

Process Method

It is produced from the partial oxidation or thermal decomposition of hydrocarbon gases or liquids. Several processes have evolved over the years, each producing types (or grades), that differ in particle size, surface area, aggregation, and purity. Is different. Different types are often classified based on the process of creation or based on the raw materials used. The product produced in this company is in the furnace method and in granulated form. which constitutes a dominant product (with more than 95% of the total production  in the world). The furnace method of industrial this commodity production has advantages compared to other production methods. So use of this method makes it possible to produce black carbon with various applications.

Carbon Black Applications

It is commonly used in a wide variety of industrial applications. It is produced from the incomplete combustion of carbon-based materials such as coal, oil or natural gas. Carbon black is a form of elemental carbon that has an extremely high surface area and is highly absorbent and useful in a variety of manufacturing processes. One of the primary uses, is as a reinforcing agent in rubber products. When added to rubber, carbon black increases the material’s physical properties, improving wear resistance, elasticity, and strength. It also helps reduce heat build-up in tires and other rubber products, thereby increasing their lifespan. It is also used in the production of printing inks, where it acts as a pigment to create a deep black color. It is widely used in the production of toner powders for photocopiers and printers, where it is a critical component of the printing process. Another major use is  is in the production of plastics, where it helps provide color, improve conductivity and reduce the risk of product degradation over time.

Use in polymer material

It is also used in the production of polypropylene, polyethylene and other polymeric materials used in a wide range of consumer and industrial applications. In addition to its use in rubber, plastic and printing inks, carbon black is also used in other industries. It is used as a pigment in paints, coatings and varnishes, where it provides a deep, rich black color. It is also used as a catalyst in chemical reactions and as a filler in insulators and other materials. As a result, it is a versatile and indispensable material that plays an important role in a wide range of industrial applications. Its unique physical and chemical properties make it ideal for use in rubber, plastics, printing inks, paints, coatings and many other products. It is an essential component of modern manufacturing processes and has contributed significantly to advances in materials science and technology.

Carbon Black Packing

It is normally packed in 25 kg sacks and put on pallets. Also, its packed in Big bags according to the customer order.
