For achieving highest jetness in combination with a blueish undertone in automotive coatings, the proper selection of Carbon Black combined with a well-developed coating system is essential.
Carbon Blacks for high jetness applications are characterized by the following key parameters:
- small mean primary particle size
- small mean aggregate size
- narrow primary particle and aggregate size distribution
- good dispersibility
- balanced surface chemistry
Since decades our well-known COLOUR BLACK FW 200 has been setting the market standard for Carbon Blacks, mainly for solvent-borne applications.
To stay state-of-the-art and to meet the stringent performance requirements of premium high jetness coatings also for water-borne applications, we are meanwhile offering new innovative products like e.g. COLOUR BLACK FW 171, which is basically recommended for water-borne and powder coatings.
As a solution for both water- and solvent-borne high jetness coating systems, COLOUR BLACK FW 255 and COLOUR BLACK FW 310 will be the most suitable selection, as both grades fulfill all characteristics mentioned above, give you highest jetness levels and can be used universally in a broad range of different coating systems.

Besides design and coloristic performance, properties of Carbon Black enable conductivity as well as UV-protection to coating systems. Especially for primer application, the use of a conductive pigment allows the possibility for ESTA application on insulating substrates.
