Pyrolisis Carbon Fillers in Rubber – Issue 2014-2
Given the recent growth of the pyrolysis derived carbon sector, ARTIS has focussed efforts on developing the tools necessary to fully understand and evaluate this new class of rubber filler. Market perceptions of such fillers are often negative; based on a lack of understanding and previous dealings with poor quality recyclate that do not represent some of the more refined products currently on offer today. To demonstrate the credentials of pyrolysis derived carbon black (often referred to as pCB), ARTIS recently conducted a global crosscheck programme, offering an independent assessment of their composition and in-rubber performance in relation to conventional carbon blacks. The key findings of this programme are outlined below.
