Carbon Blacks for Elastomer Reinforcement

We are the global leader in reinforcing agents for high performance tires and specialized industrial rubber products.

We offer a broad portfolio of reinforcing agents, including the VULCAN®, STERLING®, REGAL®, SPHERON® and PROPEL™ product families. Carbon black is the predominant reinforcing agent used to improve the processing, strength and durability of elastomer-based composites in most rubber applications.

Our portfolio includes carbon black products specifically designed for tires as well as automotive and non-automotive industrial rubber products:

  • Conductive carbon blacks include our BLACK PEARLS® 2000, VULCAN XC-72, VULCAN P and STERLING C product lines.
  • Reinforcing carbon blacks include our VULCAN, PROPEL and REGAL product lines for use in tires and industrial rubber product applications.
  • Semi-reinforcing carbon blacks include our STERLING, SPHERON and REGAL product lines for use in tire carcasses and industrial rubber product applications.
  • Ultra-clean carbon blacks include our SPHERON A, STERLING 5630, STERLING 6630 and SPHERON SO product lines for use in extruded applications that require "Class A" surface perfection, such as automotive weather stripping.
