Barbakam publishes carbonless lab notebooks. Our notebooks are used in high schools, colleges and universities. The primary feature of our lab notebook is the self-copying pages – the original record creates an instant copy on the page underneath while writing, without placing a carbon sheet between the pages. You tear out the copy page and hand it to the teacher while keeping the original record in your notebook. Teachers collect only the copy pages. You are never without your original work. There is a wealth of scientific reference information on the covers of the notebooks.

What is a Carbonless Lab Notebook ?

A Carbonless Lab Notebook is a notebook with self-copying pages. There is no carbon sheet necessary between the pages to create a duplicate of your work. Creating a copy on the carbonless paper runs on the chemical reaction between two pages with coatings getting in contact to transfer an image when pressure is applied. The carbonless paper contains a compound coating on the back side of the original page and on the front side of the copy page. When you write, the pressure of your pen initiates a chemical reaction between the dye precursor in the top page and an acid source in the copy page. The impression transfers from one page to the next due to the flooding of tiny microcapsules from the chemical coating.
