Thanks to the variety of material modifications and material grades geared towards the respective technical application requirements, the special graphites produced by our industrial applications division represent key materials for the primary and secondary metallurgical industries, tool manufacturing, glass and ceramic industries, electrochemical industry, nuclear industry, laboratory and medical engineering.
Moulds, crucibles and plugs made of graphite used to manufacture non-ferrous, precious metal and grey cast-iron semi- finished products.
In electrical discharge machining, graphite is used as an electrode material. Graphite bears significant advantages over copper which result in lower production costs while offering identical or better quality.
Continuous innovations and maximum material purity represent distinctive requirements of the semiconductor industry. Products made of high-purity, fine-grain graphite with carbon fibre reinforced plastic perfectly meet these requirements.
This procedure places exacting requirements on graphite materials and their processing. It requires the control of high pressing forces at high temperatures in often oxidising atmospheres. Functional and durable press tools therefore necessitate the use of high-grade graphite materials and maximum production precision.
