The void volume of a carbon black expressed in absolute terms, VV, is a carbon black property that reflects differences in structure for candidate carbon blacks. Structure is a generic term that is a function of the shape irregularity and deviation from sphericity of carbon black aggregates. The more that a carbon black resists compression by having substantial aggregate irregularity and non-sphericity, the greater the compressed volume and void volume.
Structure is a property that influences the physical properties developed in carbon black compounds for use in tires, mechanical rubber goods, and other manufactured rubber products.View Less
1.1 This test method covers a procedure to measure a carbon black property called Void Volume. The void volume is obtained by measuring the compressed volume of a weighed sample contained in a cylindrical chamber when a specified compression force is applied by a movable piston with a displacement transducer on the piston mechanism.
1.2 Void volume is an important carbon black property that relates to the compounded physical properties for carbon black-filled elastomers.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
