Hot Press Die (HPD)


Whether you are pressing diamonds into metal tooling, creating exotic ceramics, or processing advanced composites, our graphite dies will enhance the performance and reduce the total cost of your process.

Our fine-grain graphite grades are used as dies for hot-pressing in powdered metal and ceramic processes. The uniform microstructure of these graphite grades yields consistent surface finish. High strength and low wear rate maximize the useful life of dies, resulting in industry-leading low cost of ownership. High, isotropic thermal conductivity ensures uniform heating, while the inherent lubricity of our graphite allows for rapid release with no sticking.
