Midnightblack® carbon black pigments and dispersions
Suitable for application in cosmetics and plastics.
Midnightblack®, D&C Black 2, is an exclusive, high purity carbon black pigment prepared by an oil furnace process. This carbon black pigment allows formulators to create a deep blue-black shade which is second to none. Mascara's, eyeliners and nail polish are the most common applications for this intense black pigment.
In the plastic industry Midnightblack® is often used in masterbatch in order to create deep black colours with approval for food contact. This makes the pigment ideal for food packaging.
Besides in powder form, GEOTECH also offers "ready to use" Midnightblack® dispersions to help customers enhancing the full colour tone of the pigment. The dispersions are also more convenient to handle in production.
