carbon blacks from Imerys


are said to offer high purity and good disper- sion


ideal solution when high purity, excellent dispersion level or low moisture is specifically required. Our proprietary process enables the controlled production of extremely clean, easily dispersible, low surface area, conductive carbon blacks as well as very high surface area conductive carbon blacks that match the severest purity require- ments for low PAH and BAP.” With a tacit nod to the recent


introduction of carbon blacks derived from old tyres, Caprara says: “Committed to sustainable development, we actively preserve the mineral resources at the heart of our operations and transform minerals in an environmentally friendly manner. We are constantly improving our energy efficiency and optimising our energy mix by using renewable energy sources.” The use of highly electro-conductive carbon black in


polyolefins, engineering plastics and polymer blends was the subject of a discussion by Josef Krivanek, Senior


Researcher at the Czech Republic Polymer Institute Brno (a part of petrochemical company Unipetrol) at the Conductive Plastics 2016 conference organised by Compounding World publisher Applied Market Information in Philadelphia, US, in September (see the full conference report


starting on page 65 in this issue). His company supplies various


grades of Chezacarb high-structure conductive carbon blacks.


Krivanek presented data on relationships between carbon black content, conductivity and


mechanical properties of various compounds containing Chezacarb and rival conductive blacks. Chezacarb grades are “recommendable for many technical applications demanding high electrical conductivity,” he concluded. New conductive speciality carbon blacks featured on


the Orion Engineered Carbons stand at K 2016. These included its recently launched Printex MV, a speciality carbon black developed for medium voltage semi-con-
