The Lab A Culture of Science
A Small But Mighty Team
We contract with you and conduct research and development to determine how best to meet your product performance targets. We’ll evaluate your product, prepare advanced materials candidates, and help you determine the right grade and formulation to meet your product goals in a cost-effective solution.
The Applied Sciences lab is located in Cedarville, Ohio, and staffed with a team of Ph.D. scientists, engineers, and materials and innovation experts. We’re the third-largest producer of carbon nanofiber, worldwide.
Global Leader in Advanced Materials
Applied Sciences specializes in the research and development of advanced materials. President Max Lake founded the company over 35 years ago, and since then, Applied Sciences has developed an international reputation working with carbon and carbon fibers. We‘ve been recognized by the state and federal governments, Industry Week, and R&D Magazine for our technology development achievements.
We didn’t discover advanced materials, but we’ve spent decades patenting, perfecting, and finding better ways to use them in a wide range of consumer products. We started in the aerospace and defense industries and have since found effective ways to use carbon nanomaterials to improve products in markets such as sporting goods, advanced energy, consumer electronics, the automotive industry, and more.

Years in business
Largest worldwide CNF producer
Our experienced team is focused on research and product development in carbon nanomaterials and carbon fibers. P3 CNFs are the Highest Quality Carbon Nanofiber in the World.About the Team
Powerful, Patented, Pyrograf® Products
Pyrograf®-III (P3) can be uniformly dispersed in a polymer to provide a conductive network using conventional mixing and compounding equipment. Pyrograf®-III provides the maximum conductivity at the lowest loading of any commercially available conductive filler. Our customers are using these improvements to provide electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and antistatic properties. P3 can also increase the mechanical strength of products to improve their durability, flexibility, longevity, conductivity, and absorption.Pyrograf Products
The Blackest Black
VOID absorbs over 99% of all light, creating the blackest black you can imagine. Applied Sciences developed a way to cure VOID at room temperature and manufacture it in more efficient volumes. No other manufacturer of light absorption paint has achieved this capability. The material has many possibilities, especially for use in optics.
