Specialty Graphite

Glassy carbon coating

We offer a wide range of graphite materials and as a value-added proposition we also offer glassy carbon coatings.

This material is a non-graphitising carbon combing glass and ceramic properties with graphite. This material features properties such as:

  • High temperature resistance
  • High hardness
  • Low density
  • Low electrical resistance
  • Low friction
  • Low thermal resistance
  • Extreme resistance to chemical attack
  • Impermeable to gases and liquid

We use this material because it eliminates furnace particulate generation, offers sealed surface porosity, has excellent release characteristics and decreases permeability making this material excellent for use in continuous casting dies and products in the Semiconductor Industry.

This coating is applied to products that have a fine grain graphite for customers that require a high gloss surface finish. In order to achieve this finish parts should be made in-house.
