High Color Specialty Carbon Blacks
Uniquely designed, high-jetness carbon blacks enable excellent color performance and dispersibility.
We offer a complete line of high color specialty carbon blacks for both water-based and solvent-based formulations for coatings applications such as:
Our EMPEROR® carbon black products balance color performance with dispersibility and formulation stability.
EMPEROR 1800® Carbon Black for Water Based Formulations
Achieve deep black color with easy-to-disperse pigments.
Our EMPEROR 1600 and EMPEROR 1200 carbon blacks feature Softbead™ technology.
Learn more about the potential use of EMPEROR® 1600 and 1200 specialty carbon blacks in plastics applications.
Typically used in coating applications, EMPEROR 1600 and 1200 specialty carbon blacks may also bring performance benefits to applications based on polymers such as plastic molding for which color is a key attribute. These benefits may include enhanced carbon black dispersion, higher jetness, and variations in color undertone. Because of their unique characteristics, incorporating EMPEROR 1600 and 1200 specialty carbon blacks into plastics or other polymeric systems may require modification of process conditions that are typically used for incorporation of other carbon blacks.
