Cabot BLACK PEARLSĀ® 800 Specialty carbon black
Categories: Other Engineering Material; Additive/Filler for Polymer

Material Notes: Product highlights: BLACK PEARLS 800 specialty carbon black sets the industry standard for high jetness black coloration of plastic parts used in diverse, high value, aesthetic applications including automotive and electronics. It is also used in applications where black coloration but low carbon black loadings are required.

Key applications: BLACK PEARLS 800 specialty carbon black offers an excellent balance of aesthetic performance characteristics, including high jetness and strong blue undertone, and low masterbatch viscosity. These attributes make this product optimal for black coloration of visible molded parts where aesthetic quality is crucial. It can be used for non-matched, high-jetness black color as well as for black color matching. It is appropriate for use across a broad array of resins and molding applications including:

  • Automotive interiors
  • Consumer electronics
  • Home appliances
BLACK PEARLS 800 specialty carbon black can be used in resins for aesthetic applications, including ABS and other styrenics, PC and PC blends, PP, PE, and TPOs. It is also an excellent choice for deep black coloration of polymers that may be sensitive to addition of carbon black, including PA, polyesters, and POM. BLACK PEARLS 800 specialty carbon black is a pelletized product. A non-pelletized carbon black having similar morphology is available in an easier-to-disperse fluffy form as MONARCH 800 specialty carbon black.

Performance features:

  • Industry benchmark for high jetness and excellent blue undertone
  • Low masterbatch viscosity (which enables high masterbatch loading)
  • Very good dispersability
  • Imparts very good molded part surface quality
