carbon graphite wear plates & plugs

We create carbon graphite plates and plugs that are used in a variety of screening and manufacturing equipment. They are self-lubricating and provide for low friction making them ideal for your application, including those that require dry-running and sanitary environments.

Custom Solutions

We have the expertise to provide you with custom solutions to fit your specific application. Have you ever encountered technical issues or questions such as the below that requires an expert’s help?

  • What do you do when you require a product with multi-functionality that cannot be met with a monolithic material?
  • How do you enhance a metallic substrate to provide multi- level lubrication properties?

This is where we provide solutions that others cannot.

As a potential customer you will have at least three concerns for a supplier:

  1. Material Portfolio
    We offer three primary grades for Lubrication Plugs & Wear Plates and a number of boutique Grades for niche applications.
