VBx1 Super-Black Non-Nanotube Coating – The Darkest Known Material In The World

Here’s a preview of how VBx 1 performs against Vantablack S-VIS on the same shaped object. VBx 1 is a completely new paint technology that does’t use carbon nanotubes to act as the active medium.

It’s been created for visible spectrum aesthetic and design applications where you want to create unique and visually stimulating features that have never before been possible.

The Vantablack VBx 1 absorber coating is a solvent based, pigmented coating dispersed in carrier solution. It has no harmful constituents. Once sprayed, it leaves behind a structured light absorbing layer that is then subjected to further vacuum processing steps to reach its exceptional level of performance.

Vantablack VBx 1 is so effective that its reflectance far outstrips any other known paint or super-black coating other than carbon nanotube based Vantablack S-VIS and original Vantablack.Because it requires post processing the largest single component part is currently limited to 420mm x 420mm. The process can be scaled to much larger single part sizes when required.read more: surreynanosystems
