About Carbon Black. Carbon Black is a generic term for a family of highly dispersed elemental carbon, with nano sized particles. Carbon Black is a black powder, of extremely fine particles, insoluble in water. It differs from other bulk carbon forms (such as diamond, graphite, coke, etc.) since it is composed of complex configurations aggregates, with nano material like properties. Carbon Black is considered one of the most stable chemical products in existence. The powder has been used as a pigment since Paleolithic times, being produced by burning vegetable oils. After the discovery of the benefits of Carbon Black as a reinforcing agent for rubber in 1904, its production rapidly grew. Currently, it is the most widely used nano-material worldwide, although substitution by silica may affect the market.

Carbon Black Handling. Great majority of Carbon Black is transported as a bulk material, while the rest is handled in bags. The material is shipped by rail or in bulk/silo trucks. Silo trucks or containers used for Carbon Black transport usually have a capacity up to 20 t, while big bags and steel bins have a capacity of about 1 t. Usually, coated steel storage tanks, with a capacity of 100-1,000 t are used for storage. Some special purpose blacks are shipped and stored in plastic or paper bags, stacked on palettes.

Carbon Black Production. Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Carbon Black are listed below.

  • Heavy fuel/residual oils (oil-furnace/furnace black process),
  • Natural gas (thermal black process),
  • Acetylene (acetylene black process),
  • Heavy fuel/residual oils (gas black process),
  • High aromatic hydrocarbon content oil (lamp black process)

Carbon Black Uses. The uses and applications of Carbon Black may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Carbon Black are rubber-grade (11-100 nm average particle size, reinforcing and semireinforcing blacks) and pigment-grade (13-110 nm average particle size, coatings and lacquers, plastics, printing inks, and tinting blacks).
