Conductive Carbon Black

Conductive carbon black - constantly developing

Conductive carbon black comes in various types, most of which are named with reference to the production process by which they are created. Traditional forms of carbon black include ivory black, which was actually made from ivory (or bones) and has long been discontinued for obvious reasons, vine black (made from dried grape vines) and lamp black (made from soot from oil lamps). These days the main variety of carbon black is furnace black, which uses a single furnace reactor, and thermal black, which uses a pair of furnaces. This has made the production process more efficient and more environmentally friendly.
