Our products provide long lasting color and opacity in a wide range of plastic molding applications.
We offer a broad range of specialty carbons and black masterbatch products that provide superior color for molded parts in consumer, industrial and automotive markets. Our products enable high performance in a wide range of polymers, including polyolefins and engineering thermoplastics. Additionally, many of our products exhibit high levels of cleanliness to ensure the aesthetic quality of your final products. Each product is specifically designed to meet a particular performance balance in terms of the main key performance criteria important in molded plastic applications such as:
BLACK PEARLS® 1180HD specialty carbon black helps to improve the mechanical performance of polar plastic compounds and therefore enables performance upgrades, resin substitution, cost reduction and increased use of recycled resins. The improvement of mechanical properties is driven by improved dispersion capabilities, permitting lower loadings compared to standard products, and makes the product the ideal choice for those looking to increase sustainability of their materials through the use of recycled content.Download Brochure
Many consumer goods, such as household appliances, electronics equipment (e.g. mobile phones, tablets) and packaging need to meet the increasingly stringent aesthetic requirements of consumers who require deep black color balanced with an appealing blue undertone. For these types of applications where components are visible to end-customers, color performance, surface smoothness, dispersibility and mechanical performance are critical.Download Brochure
Molded automotive products require specialty carbons for coloration of interior, exterior and under-the-hood parts, mostly made from engineering thermoplastics. While color performance remains the most important attribute of a specialty carbon, dispersibility and physical cleanliness are also very important because the presence of contaminants can concentrate stresses, erode mechanical properties and degrade surface quality.Download Brochure
