Singularity School 

Interested in learning how to use it for a larger project?

 

I run NanoLab's Singularity school and I have been trained in how to handle and apply it, I offer private sessions on safety protocol and techniques to make your works void of light and color in my own studio. Contact me to schedule a time to learn how remove light from your own works.

"Named after the gravitational phenomena predicted to lurk at the center of a black hole, Singularity Black combines carbon nanotubes, which absorb and trap light, with a binding agent.  The paint was created by NanoLab under contract with NASA. As Sarah Cascone explains for ArtNet, the space agency uses Singularity Black to absorb stray light that would otherwise interfere with sensors on observation equipment. When applied to 3-D objects, the paint can make even the most textured surfaces appear flat.

About Singularity Black 

 

Singularity Black.  What is it? 

NanoLab’s Singularity Black has the lowest visible reflectance of any paint available. It is a carbon nanotube paint that comes in two formulations. 

 

The original formulation made for NASA to reduce light reflectance on optics; this version has to be heated to 300 degrees celsius.  

And the more user friendly Singularity LT  (low temperature) that only needs the use of a heat gun to activate so it can be used on cloth or over cured paint.   

 

Both versions result in a structural black surface that swallows light, creating a black unlike any other paint and you can buy it today.   

 

 

I highly recommend you talk to the lab about how to use it best for your applications or feel free to hit me up with your questions. I've tested both versions on and over many many things and I'm more than willing to share what I know.
