Carbon Black is used in interior and exterior paint systems for all kind of applications. It provides long term color stability, as it is highly UV-stable. In general, a tinting application differs enormous from high jetness applications, hence different Carbon Blacks are recommended for each application. The use of different Carbon Black grades in combination with Titaniumdioxid has e.g. a massive impact on the undertone.
