Cabot carbon black chosen for auto paint

Filed under: Carbon Black — Notch @ 2:09 am

Taiwan-based Halsan Paint & Color has chosen Cabot’s EMPEROR 1800 carbon black for its next-generation black automotive coatings, which find use on vehicles and motorcycles across Asia.

Black coatings formulators are continuously trying to achieve superior jetness, meaning cleaner and darker with a blue tint, with the use of carbon black pigments that are considerably difficult to handle. Several top-class carbon black pigments have drawbacks that include the use of costly dispersants and long milling times. They minimize the formulator’s capability to alter other features of the final coating.

EMPEROR 1800 is the Cabot’s newly developed product in the area of high-strength black pigments used for water-borne formulations. This advancement contributes to reduction in manufacturing costs and exceeds industry standards for color performance.
