The article provides information on carbon black. Carbon black is used mainly as a reinforcing filler for rubber, which accounts for more than 90% of demand. Tyres accounted for 68% of total carbon black volumes in 2005, while non-tyre rubber goods, primarily mechanical rubber goods, accounted for 24% of demand. The remainder is taken by special blacks, which includes all carbon blacks used in non-rubber applications.
