Orion Engineered Carbons S.A., a leading global supplier of specialty and high-performance carbon black, is introducing a new carbon black designed specifically for wire and cable insulation and strand shield applications. Orion is also highlighting PRINTEX kappa 70 beads, a conductive carbon black for injection-molded plastics as well as wire and cable applications.

“To qualify for wire and cable insulation and strand shield applications, carbon black must disperse readily in polyethylene and various elastomers, show very low levels of ionic contamination and impart target conductivity to minimize dielectric stress between the conductor and cable insulation,” said Sandra Niewiem, Ph.D., Senior Vice President, Global Specialty Carbon Black and EMEA Region, at Orion.
