Carbon as a carbon glassy modification.
Rod with a length of ~170mm and 6.6mm Diameter
Glassy carbon, also called vitreous carbon, is an advanced material of pure carbon combining glassy and ceramic properties with these of graphite. Unlike graphite, glassy carbon has a fullerene-related microstructure. This leads to a great variety of unique material properties.
- Extreme resistance to thermal shock and corrosion
- stable in inert gas or vacuum up to 3000?C
This modification of the element still is very expensive and hard to find. A must-have for every element collection!
