Rubber often contains carbon black; a substance giving rubber its traditional black colouring, and also imparting beneficial physical properties to the vulcanised end product. Carbon black is produced by pyrolysis of hydrocarbons at high temperatures. This process results in the formation of trace levels of organic impurities, such as PAHs (Low Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons), which […]
