AkzoNobel has a leading position in the electroconductive carbon black market. Our Ketjenblack superconductive carbon blacks offer the highest electrical conductivity at the lowest concentration in the industry.

They provide your products with excellent antistatic or electroconductive properties in order to attain the highest level of safety in their end use.

Our high-purity superconductive blacks are used in a wide range of applications. These include protective packaging for electronics, safety shoes, fuel tanks and hoses, conductive flooring, medium and high-voltage cables, and electrostatic paintable plastics including automotive parts. Ketjenblack® is also used in non-polymer applications such as batteries, fuel cells and conductive coatings.

Due to the unique morphology of Ketjenblack, substantially lower amounts are needed to obtain the desired properties when compared to conventional conductive carbon blacks. As a result the processing and mechanical properties of the final compound are much less impacted. Ketjenblack EC-600JD is the benchmark in the industry, giving the best electroconductive properties.

We also produce tailor-made superconductive carbon black formulations. Regardless of concentration or medium, we can meet your specific needs.
