- SPHERON® SO-LP carbon black - A semi-reinforcing carbon black with very high structure that is easy to disperse and provides excellent extrusion properties to rubber compounds. SPHERON® SO-LP carbon black is recommended for rubber compounds that require a very low PAH content and are currently based on standard ASTM N650, N683, N539 and N550 carbon blacks.
- SPHERON® 4000-LP carbon black - A semi-reinforcing carbon black with very low surface area and structure that offers excellent rubber compound flowability by imparting low viscosity even at high loadings. SPHERON® 4000-LP carbon black is the product of choice for replacing ASTM N762, N772 and N774 carbon blacks in very low PAH content applications.
- VULCAN® 6-LP carbon black - A reinforcing carbon black recommended for rubber products that require a very low PAH and higher reinforcement, strength, abrasion and tearing resistance level than offered by semi-reinforcing carbon blacks. VULCAN 6-LP carbon black is recommended for rubber compounds that require a very low PAH content and are currently based on standard ASTM N220 carbon black.
