Industrial Graphite Grades


From aerospace to energy, the breadth and depth of our graphite portfolio provides a wide range of characteristics to meet your application needs.

We manufacture a variety of specialty graphite and silicon carbide materials that are ideally suited for a vast range of highly technical industrial applications. We are well known for our production of uniform materials that range from 1 micron to 10 microns in particle size, with options for post processes, infiltrations, and coatings. Our grades are created with tightly controlled isotropic grains that provide predictable behavior and enable reliable finished parts. With our comprehensive portfolio of products, we can match the ideal material to your application.

Our graphite grades are available as semi-finished rods, blocks, plates, and fully machined parts.
