Conductive Carbon Black

Conductive carbon black - vital for the car industry

One of the best-known uses for conductive carbon black is in tyres. It has long been used to give colour to rubber, but it is far more than just a cosmetic agent. Carbon black also strengthens and reinforces the rubber. As friction from contact with the road (or other driving surface) generates heat, carbon black draws this away from the vulnerable parts of the rubber, preserving it and extending its life. Carbon black is also used on the surface of cars. It is frequently an important ingredient in paints and related products, such as base coats and clear top coats, as well as being used to make black paint.
