Reinforcement Materials This segment offers carbon black, which is a form of elemental carbon that is manufactured in a controlled process to produce particles and aggregates of varied structure and surface chemistry. Rubber grade carbon blacks are used to enhance the physical properties of the systems and applications in which they are incorporated. The company’s rubber blacks products are used in tires and industrial products. Rubber blacks have traditionally been used in the tire industry as a rubber reinforcing agent and are also used as a performance additive. In industrial products, such as hoses, belts, extruded profiles and molded goods, rubber blacks are used to improve the physical performance of the product.

In each business, the company designs, manufactures and sells materials that deliver performance in a range of customer applications across the automotive, construction and infrastructure, electronics, and consumer products sectors. The company’s specialty grades of carbon black are used to impart color, provide rheology control, enhance conductivity and static charge control, provide UV protection, enhance mechanical properties, and provide formulation flexibility through surface treatment. These products are used in various applications, such as inks, coatings, cables, pipes, toners and electronics. In addition, the company manufactures and sources thermoplastic concentrates and compounds that are marketed to the plastics industry.
