Carbon Black Feedstock (CBFS) is a mixture of C12 and higher components rich in naphthalene, methyl-indene, anthracene, fluorine and other poly-aromatic components. It originates from the high temperature cracking of petroleum fractions.
CBFS is used to produce Carbon Black, which is used in tyres and road paving, tyre reinforcements, conveyer belts, cables, mechanical rubber goods, black pigments (e.g. for road markings), and conductors. The stream also contains piperylene, which is used to produce copolymerization elastomers, petroleum resins, curing agents, pesticides, and perfumes. CBFS is also used as heating Fuel Oil in several industrial units.
1. Naphthalene – used for phthalic anhydride, insecticides, and concrete plasticizers.
2. Biphenyl – used for food preservatives, heat transfer fluids, and organic syntheses.
Fluorine or anthracene – used for light emitting diodes, dyes, and wood preservatives.
1. Paints and Coatings – Automotive and OEM, Industrial, Stoving, Coil and Metal Coatings, Enamels, Alkyds, Hammer tone, Low Odor finishes, Epoxies and Polyurethanes.
2. Inks – Screen, PVC, Reducers, Cleaning Solvents.
3. Agrochemicals – Pesticides, Herbicides, Insecticides and environment friendly agrochemical formulations.
4. Specialty Chemicals – Oil Field Chemicals, Water Treatment Chemicals, Industrial Cleaning, Sealants, Process Oil, Additives, etc.
