thermal black

A special type of carbon black produced by pyrolysis of gaseous hydrocarbons in a preheated chamber in the absence of air. Thermal black consists of relatively large individual spheres (100 - 500 nm diameter) and aggregates of a small number of pseudospherical particles. The preferred alignment of the layer planes is parallel to the surface of the spheres.
