Carbon Black Oil is a mixture of C12 and higher components rich in naphthalene, methyl-indenes,
anthracene, fluorene and other poly-aromatic components. Carbon black oil is used as feed stock in
carbon black manufacturing which is used in the Rubber and Tyre industry. Due to higher B.M.C.I.
than imported feed stock, carbon black oil is often preferred by carbon black manufacturers. It is
also used as a substitute for furnace oil in different industries as it is a commercially cheaper option.
Carbon Black Oil originates from the high temperature cracking of petroleum fractions. Different
fractions of oils are produced during coal tar distillation ranging between 180C and 350C. The
heavier part of the oil is the basic raw material for manufacturing of carbon black.
