Pyrolytic Carbon Films

Our CVD-based pyrolytic carbons films possess low electrical resistance, opacity, and a high degree of chemical and thermal stability.

The carbon materials family is composed of various materials – each of which exist with different atomic structures and at different scales, thereby offering unique features and functionality. Unlike graphene, pyrolytic carbon films lack crystallinity, and exist closer to the microscale as opposed to the nanoscale – resulting in both materials working very differently from one another.
