Coating Systems

Nuances, variety and variance succeed only by the use of different blacks. We generate more than 280 Specialty Carbon Black grades using five manufacturing processes plus after treatments.

Coatings is all about color perception with multivariable requirements depending on industry, application and end use of manufactured goods. Among the color perception of coatings, Carbon Black generates properties for both conductive- and non-conductive- coatings. Any paint pigmented with Carbon Black has enhanced UV-stability and thus prolongs life time of a coating.

Among many other application fields, including liquid as well as powder coatings, Carbon Black is of highest importance for the following coating industry areas:

  • Automotive Coatings
  • Industrial Coatings
  • Decorative Paints
