AkzoNobel recommends to store Ketjenblack EC-600JD in a dry place away from direct sunlight. The packaging can be damaged if exposed to direct sunlight for more than 30 minutes.
When stored under these recommended storage conditions,Ketjenblack EC-600JD will remain within the AkzoNobel specifications for a period of at least six months after delivery.
Packing and Transport
The standard packaging is 8 kgs net in a vented PE bag.The vent consists of a small plastic value which contains HDPE,NBR and cellulosic parts,which are not readily dispersed during compounding. Due to this we strongly advice not to put the Ketjenblack EC-600JD including the bag into the mixing system. A full pallet carries 320 kg net.
Both packaging and transport meet the international regulations. For the availability of other packed quantities contact your AkzoNobel representative. Ketjenblack EC-600JD is classified as a non-hazardous good according to national and international transport regulations.
Safety and handling
Please refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for further information on the safe storage,use and handling of Ketjenblack
EC-600JD. This information should be thoroughly reviewed prior to acceptance of this product.The MSDS is available at www.akzonobel.com/polymer.
Ketjenblack EC-600JD is a very pure carbon black extremely suitable for antistatic and electroconductive applications. Due to its unique morphology and the very high surface area of approx. 1400 m2/g (BET),only one third the amount of Ketjenblack EC-600JD is needed compared to conventional electroconductive blacks in order to achieve the same conductivity. The lower loading of Ketjenblack EC-600JD allows easier processing for those polymers sensitive to filler addition, thus minimizing loss in mechanical and rheological properties.
Ketjenblack EC-600JD when thoroughly dispersed with the polymer significantly increases the conductivity of the resulting compound. Ketjenblack EC-600JD can be used in all types of polymers, thermoset, thermoplastic as well as elastomers. Due to its unique morphology and structure with relative low amounts of Ketjenblack EC-600JD excellent conductive material can be made. The low grit content results in very smooth surfaces during extrusion. The loading needed to obtain a certain conductivity can vary significantly per type of polymer. More detailed information is provided in our special Ketjenblack EC Technical Bulletin. Ketjenblack EC-600JD has a very low ash content, which makes it the preferred material for semicon applications in cable shielding. Ketjenblack EC-600JD can also be used to produce conductive coatings and primers. Also here already at very low loading levels optimal electroconductive performance is obtained minimizing loss in mechanical and rheological properties.
Some other applications are batteries, packaging for IC parts, tubing, flooring, carpet backing, automotive parts, cell phones and many more. For even more demanding applications Ketjenblack EC600JD is available of which about half the amount is needed to obtain the same conductivity as with Ketjenblack EC300J.
