Carbon black is used in polymers for various reasons. Its most important effects are recorded in its coloristic properties like high jet black to color matching purpose, UV-protection and electrical conductivity. Additionally, carbon black's reinforcing power and ability to change rheological properties provides significant advantages for carbon black elastomers, adhesive and sealants. Orion is attentive to customers’ needs to provide them with a solution that matches perfectly with their requirements, following our core value of collaborative partnerships with our valued customers.

Among its many uses, carbon black plays a significant role in the following polymer industry areas:

  • Pipes for gas, water and chemical transportation
  • Synthetic fibers for textiles and industrial applications
  • Adhesives and sealants
  • Semi conductive compounds for high voltage cables
  • Cable jacketing
  • Engineered polymers for automotive parts
  • Films for food packaging and agricultural applications
  • Conductive and antistatic modification
