/// Carbon Characteristics

Carbon has many good qualities, but it is especially superior in heat resistance. Carbon burns in places that have oxygen due to its charcoal content; however, in places that do not have oxygen such as vacuums, it can burn at temperatures up to 3,000℃. This makes it the best material for heat resistance.

The following are some general characteristics of carbon:

  1. Heat Resistance………up to 3,000℃ where there is no oxygen
  2. Electrical Conductivity………1/500 that of copper & 1/100 that of iron
  3. Heat Conductivity………2 to 3 times that of steel & 1/2 to 1/3 that of copper
  4. Low Friction; Slides Easily
  5. Chemical Stability………strong against acid, alkali, etc.
  6. Low Thermal Expansion………1/6 that of steel
  7. Strength (even in high temperatures………double the usual temperature of 2,500℃
  8. Low Breakage (even when heat is raised)
  9. Low Resilience
  10. Light Weight………specific gravity 1.6-2.0

Specialty Carbon Products

Specialty carbon products range from semiconductors, heat treatments, smelting, glass, metallurgy, dentistry, hot pressing, fuel cells, electrolysis, EDM processing, food prepartion, etc.


High Quality carbon and graphite EDM and GR. We even have graphite of particle diameters as small as 1-3 um and we recommend graphite with the exception of super fine-end finished products.

Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is made from carbon fiber bound material and the chief raw material used is acrylic fiber. Its special characteristics are: light weight, high resilience, high heat conductivity, low thermal expansion, and radio translucency.
