The ALBLACK* Process
is the cracking of acetylene in a gas-oxygen flame, producing a
high quality, dry deposit of carbon. The carbon deposition obtained
by means of the ALBLACK* Process is a clean, automatic replacement
for the oil based lubricants or dope used on forming molds.
acetylene is injected into a gas-oxygen flame, it breaks down to
give carbon. The ALBLACK* Process avoids the formation of aromatic
compounds or tars, which can coat the production machinery, as well
as affect the air quality in the work environment. N.M. Knight and
L’Air Liquide have developed equipment for this process, which produces
a deposit of carbon black of controlled quality, with good reproducibility.
ALBLACK* is used on glass
forming machines of all types, including I.S. Machines and Press
Machines used in various industries such as Packaging, Lighting,
Television, as well as other industrial and technical glass forming
