Let carbon black improve conductivity in your plastic compounds

  • High electrical conductivity
  • High purity
  • Easy dispersion
  • Easy compounding and processing with high extrusion throughput
  • Low moisture absorption
  • Smooth surface finish
  • Good balance of mechanical, flow, electrical and dynamic properties
  • Improved stability to shear

If you need to enhance electrical conductivity in plastics, improve lubrication, durability or surface consistency – or a blend of all these attributes – we can formulate a mineral-based solution for you that also delivers on safety, price and operational efficiency. 

Our Ensaco® carbon blacks are a special family of electrically conductive carbon blacks, produced through a proprietary method, that delivers extremely pure products with many advantages over conventional alternatives.

Ensaco conductive carbon blacks are the solution of choice for conductive and antistatic plastics compounds. Used in combination with other additives, they also provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding.

For those producing polymer compounds for applications like electronic packaging, power cables, antistatic films, electromagnetic shielding or liners for automotive fuel hoses, our range of carbon blacks supercharge electrical conductivity. 

Final applications include:

  • Electronic packaging
  • Packaging for flammable products
  • Anti-static flooring
  • Fuel hoses and tanks
  • Industrial pipes
  • ATEX and ESD
  • EMI shielding
  • Power cables and accessories
  • Conveyor and transmission belts
  • Cylinder covering
  • Rollers
  • Safety systems and switches
  • Heating systems
  • Electrostatic painting
  • Anti-vibration systems
