OCI, the leader of carbon black in Korea, advances towards the global market.
Carbon black is used to reinforce rubber elasticity and to color rubber used for producing tires. The carbon black business is growing as demand in the automotive tire industry grows. Also, it is used for various purposes such as ink, paint and conductive materials.
Carbon black is a fine powder material in the form of soot produced through incomplete combustion or pyrolysis. OCI produces carbon black from petroleum and coal-based raw materials, and we have secured production capabilities for various grades of carbon black.
