Amorphous Carbons (C)

Amorphous carbons include Carbon Black, Furnace Black, and Channel Black. They are black pigments produced by the thermal decomposition of natural hydrocarbons. These are free and reactive carbons with no crystalline structure. Reade offers furnace black.

Nominal purity= 98.5 to 99.6%

Available in bead, ground, and powder form with particle sizes ranging from 16 to 280 nanometers.
Typical Applications

Amorphous carbons are essential fillers in the rubber industry and next to titanium dioxide, the most important pigment used in printing inks, toners, single-ply roofing, inks, paints, and plastics. They are also used as the starting material for organic semiconductors in solar cells, bio/pharma, and perovskites. Carbon black is used in reinforcing automobile tires by conducting heat away from the tread and belt area of the tire, reducing thermal damage and increasing tire life and in some radar absorbent materials.

Sustainable Qualities

Amorphous Carbon is a versatile material derived from renewable resources, making it a sustainable and bio-based option for a range of applications. It is produced through the Carbonization of biomass, such as wood, plant fibers, or waste materials like food scraps or sawdust. This process converts the Carbon in the biomass into a solid form, resulting in a high surface area, highly porous material ideal for various applications.

One of the significant benefits of Amorphous Carbon is its ability to contribute to the circular economy. It can be recycled and repurposed, reducing the amount of waste produced and minimizing the need for virgin materials. Its high surface area and porosity also make it useful for water treatment and air filtration applications, where it can remove pollutants and contaminants from the environment. Overall, Amorphous Carbon is a sustainable, bio-based material that can contribute to a circular economy by reducing waste and improving the environmental impact of various industries.
