Thermax® application

Plastics

Thermax® can improve the melt flow index of black plastic compounds, resulting in reduced energy costs, improved productivity without capital investment and more highly loaded concentrates. Plastic article makers can benefit from better mold flow in highly filled compounds. As the least electrically conductive carbon black, it is the optimum choice for insulating applications.

Thermax® Grade

N990

Thermax®

Thermax® N990 consists of uniform soft pellets which are easy to disperse in most applications, yet can withstand the rigours of transportation.

Announcement on Cancarb Power Plant Operations

The Cancarb Power Plant is currently offline for a scheduled maintenance. As a result, waste heat is being exhausted through the bypass stack to atmosphere.

The maintenance work is expected to be completed by Saturday, January 14 with operations resuming Sunday, January 15 at which time the bypass stack will be closed and the waste heat directed to steam generation.
