Carbon Graphite Blocks & Blanks

Our carbon material blanks are made from our entire range of carbon graphite, electrographite, resin-bonded graphite and metal graphite grades. These are available in a variety of different sizes and shapes to suit many final applications. Our customers largely use these to machine final end products at their own facility.


Electrical Transmission

Electrical Transmission

Our proprietary grades have unique performance characteristics particularly suited for dynamic electrical transmission applications.

Dry Running Self Lubricating

Dry Running / Self Lubricating

Due to their inherent self-lubrication properties and dry running capabilities, our products are capable of running without lubricants.

High Temperatures

High Temperatures

Our high temperature grades are developed specifically to withstand extremely high temperatures while maintaining high strength.

Low Temperatures

Low Temperatures

For environments involving extremely low temperatures, our products will withstand these temperatures while maintaining their key characteristics

Corrosive & Harsh Environments

Corrosive & Harsh Environments

Our grades are able to be used in a variety of corrosive and harsh environments while resisting decomposition or degradation of the materials.

High Friction

High Friction

Resists wear and reduces friction as it is chemically inert, oxidation-resistant and self-lubricating.

Sanitary Environments

Sanitary Environments

When an application requires sanitary conditions, e.g., food & beverage, medical, our products are the ideal solution.

Submerged Marine Environments

Submerged / Marine Environments

We have specific grades that are able to operate in both freshwater and saltwater.

High Altitude

High Altitude

When our products will be operating at high altitudes, we have developed specific grades for these instances.

Mechanical Seal

Carbon Graphite Mechanical Seal Types

Rotating equipment often requires a dynamic mechanical seal to create a seal between a rotating shaft and a stationary body and prevent the escape of process fluid(s) including liquid and/or gas. They can also be used in mixer seals to prevent fugitive ambient particulates from entering a contained vessel being being mixed such as a pharmaceutical reaction…

Bearing Life

Why Bearings Fail and How to Prevent It

All bearings have a fixed life expectancy. Some are replaced because of normal wear or spalling, and others need replacing because of premature wear or failure. An unexpected failure can cause damage to equipment, downtime, costly replacement, and possibly even injury. And, even before they fail, the premature wear is likely to have effects on performance …

Graphite Conductivity

Carbon Graphite Conductivity & Expansion

When deciding on the materials for carbon graphite components or parts, it all starts with a thorough review of the application which includes the components’ form/function/fit and property identifying the “must haves” and the “nice to haves” and melding these with a design for manufacturability. There are three important physical characteristics …
