IRAN CARBON at a glance:

After studies on providing the industrial carbon black requirements for consumption in rubber & tire industries, it became clear that building establishment a carbon black plant factory in Iran is essential and economical. For this target, an agreement was made between NPC, MID bank and Cabot Corp. to build first carbon black plant.

After studies on providing the industrial black requirements for consumption in rubber factories, it became clear that building a carbon factory in Iran is essential and economical. For this target, National Petrochemical Industries Company and Industries and Mines Development Bank signed a contract with one of the most famous companies producing industry black in the United Provinces named Cabot Corporation. Controlled by both Iranian engineers and an American company called Simon Carves construction operations started in Ahvaz, in 1972. After construction and installation of machineries in January 1974, operations started with the annual capacity of 14000 tons. ICC could attract domestic markets, mainly tire factories, early at the very time of production due to high quality of its products. With the fast development and improvement of tire factories it became necessary to develop carbon companies. In the year 1977, all the steps were made to increase the production from 14000 to 16000 tons per a year and purchase of machineries started. At the time of victory of Islamic Republic of Iran in February 1978 nearly 80% of the required items were supplied and the remaining were suspended because of the US sanctions. In the year 1982 with the effort of engineers and staff of ICC and with the cooperation of experts of National Petrochemical Industries Company the remaining parts were completed in Iran and the ideal development without the help of foreign experts were implemented and in mid 1982 continued its activities with the capacity of 19000 tons.

Technology & Products

Introduction on Products

Carbon black is a very important additive to the rubbers that supports ELASTOMERS to improve mechanical properties. Black is used for light protection, coloring, and increasing the transmission properties. Decreasing the used rubber amount and its price to achieve mechanical efficiency and increasing operational efficiency as resistance rubbing causes the cost saving.

Produced Blacks

It is noteworthy that this company has essential, technical and technological capability in producing other blacks according to the customers’ requirements, inquiries and the specifications of the factory equipments. In packing the products the company has the ability of meeting the customers requirements with the high-tech packing system. ICC `s product grades are : N220,N330,N339,N375,N550,N660
