Key Advantages of St. Marys Carbon Hot Glass Handling Products:

  • Self-Lubricating Our Hot Glass Handling products are self-lubricating, meaning that a separate lubricant (e.g., oil) is not required, which allows them to be used in both dry-running and sanitary environments.
  • Non-Checking – The self-lubricating properties of our Hot Glass Handling products will greatly reduce the amount of friction and wear during operation, which will prevent the glass from checking.
  • Maintain Glass Quality – The unique properties of our Hot Glass Handling materials will maintain glass quality during the manufacturing process as they will not wet, adhere to or stain glassware.
  • Use in Medical and Food Applications – As our Hot Glass Handling products are contamination-free, meaning no lubricants are required, they can be used in a variety of key industries for which glass handling is required, e.g., the manufacture of glass components for the food & beverage and medical / pharmaceutical industries.
  • Stability at High Temperatures – Our proprietary mix of carbon graphite is able to withstand extreme temperatures, which allows our Hot Glass Handling products to be used in a variety of manufacturing processes without damage to the glass or your equipment.
  • Anti-Welding/Melting: As our Hot Glass Handling products can withstand high temperatures, they are resistant to melting or welding to your equipment during operation, allowing your equipment to run longer and perform better.
