Lampblack & Carbonblack
We have three types of Lampblack avaliable: Standard, Premium and Inkjet Quality. Our standard grade is a lamp black derived from a liquid feedstock and gives a broad particle size range. The premium product is a gas black with an ultrafine 25 nanometre average primary particle size. The inkjet quality grade is the ideal Carbon Black for Aqueous Inkjet inks, with a good smear resistance and print density. Lampblack is essentially very finely divided carbon formed by collecting the soot from partially burnt materials. When handling this material wet, it is advised to add a percentage of alcohol to reduce the surface tension.

Standard Lamp Black
Highly stable, amorphous carbon black, which allows pigment seperation and is designed for use in powder coatings. Commonly used as a tinting carbon black, with pigment seperation for coatings for a variety of materials: plastics, metal castings, for accumulators, graphite parts, and a reactivity component in hard metals and ceramics.
Premium Carbon Black
Highly structured pigment, designed for solvent and water based powder coatings, also in industrial and tinting applications. Commonly used as water based printing inks in gravure packaging and screen printing processes. Premium carbon black can also be used in solvent based liquid inks. It is used in paints, impact transfer printing, plastics and coatings.
Carbon Black Inkjet
Easily dispersed, provides magnificent print density, high coverage and improved smear resistance. This is the ideal Carbon Black for Aqueous Inkjet inks, along with massstone colouring in pure black coatings (e.g. automotive base coats), tinting in grey coatings and paints, light tinting for metalic effects and wood glazing.
