Definitions for "Carbon black"
Pure carbon pigment is derived from the partial burning or carbonizing of natural gas. Lamp Black, Ivory Black and other varieties of black are sometimes referred to as carbon black. Pure carbon is the most color-intense but has a tendency to streak and therefore is not a good painter's pigment. It is inert but has poor siccative qualities, which means that it is best used mixed with a drying pigment such as umber.
A black pigment produced by the incomplete burning of natural gas or oil, that possesses excellent ultraviolet protective properties.
