CFOAM® Carbon Foam Abrasives

CFOAM® Carbon Foam cellular structure makes it a great candidate for a wide spectrum of abrasive applications.



CFOAM® carbon foam is made from an inorganic form of carbon that has a very high hardness. In addition, its cellular structure makes it a great candidate for a wide spectrum of abrasive applications from cosmetic exfoliation to the polishing of glass, metals, and the removal of paints.

CFOAM® carbon foam is a rigid foam which can be machined to simple or complex shapes. In addition, its open pore structure allows a liquid to be passed through the foam, flushing away abraded particles and cooling the surface.

The inherent inertness of carbon foam allows for its use with a wide range of solvents even at high temperature.

Gas Grills

CFOAM® carbon foam removes the black baked-on carbon along with rust, leaving the iron or steel racks clean and shiny.

Paint Removal

CFOAM® carbon foam is an excellent material for the removal of paint and rust, and can be used to clean all kinds of metal surfaces.

Cosmetic Applications

CFOAM® carbon foam can be used as a cosmetic exfoliant to remove dry and excess skin. CFOAM® carbon foam can also be used as an abrasive for the filing and shaping of the nails during a manicure or pedicure.

Microstructure of CFOAM® Carbon Foam

CFOAM® carbon foam resembles a pumice stone – only black instead of white. It has an advantage over pumice in that its cell size and morphology can be tailored to optimize the product for a particular application.
