Aside from their use as rubber additives, carbon blacks are used as colorants in many contexts, such as photocopying, typewriting, carbon copying, and printing. The ultimate products are commonly in close proximity to man and are often worn or turned into waste, further enhancing the dissemination of their ingredients.
