Since it consists of creating an etched or "cratered" surface, I would think that it would have broader application used as a coating on the interior of lens barrels, enlarger lens boards, negative stages, and even negative carriers to decrease the possibility of flare. I personally don't see it used as a means to achieve a deeper black on paper or on the optical surfaces of lenses for the reasons that etching or "cratering" the surface would probably be detrimental to the image.
You guys!!! you are easily impressed, you want to see black? really, really black?? like black hole black?......if you do let me know and I will send you one of my overexposed, overdeveloped negatives......does not get any darker than them....

I have an idea for you. Take those down to your local welding supply store...they will pay you for those!!!!...very effective at shielding ones eyes from the arc of that blinding light.
And think of it, if you will, of the tremendous sense of contributation to the wellbeing of your fellow man that you will experience. You will become known as Saint Jorge, patron saint of the blind.
And to think that we all knew you "when".!!!! </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
Well, the way things are now, I would get sued the first time someone welded their finger because they could not see the light...they are that dark you know...
Jorge, Well in that case...maybe not. You have the good fortune to understand all of the aspects of "Murphys Law". I just keep getting into trouble and working doubly hard to get back out again...Kinda like digging a ditch in sand.
