Glassy carbon, a brittle form of carbon with a randomized structure, has certain specific properties making it appropriate for fields of application outside the scope of carbon types previously known. Glassy carbon offers high purity, corrosion resistance, thermal stability and a structure impermeable to both gases and liquids. Alta Aesar's glassy carbon products are subjected to a high temperature heat treatment which imparts special material properties including significantly improved corrosion resistance and strength. Advantages over more traditional materials are:
