sure Ron, in a solvent base the black is carbon, now this does not apply to a water base as they may used burnt bones or whatever else is black.

Carbon conduces electricity and the solvents and other additives are polar, so the main reason it dries slower is its fighting the solvents from coming out, to keep this short.

That is why any custom black job the base sets over night before clearing.
Dark Blues and dark greens are the other problems as they have a lot of black in them.
