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.
