In addition to its superior optical performance Vacuum BlackTM delivers many other attributes important in space applications.
*Detailed BRDF data is available.
- Essentially zero outgassing
- Vacuum and thermal-vacuum cycling compatible
- Operating temperatures from (-)269°C to (+)380°C
- No particulation
- Only a few microns thick
- Compatible with virtually all substrate materials
- Resistant to ATOX
Vacuum BlackTM is chosen where very low reflectance / high emissivity is required in the FUV — UV and VIS to SWIR regions – typically for stray light suppression.
Vacuum BlackTM has been extensively tested and qualified for space applications and is applied in space programs including the Venus Project Satellite, Nano satellite GHG – vegetation & environment earth observation.
