/// 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.

EDM/GR

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.
