Graphite is used for many different applications but in it’s “as produced” form it may not be completely suitable. For instance if the surrounding atmosphere is high in Oxygen and the ambient temperature is greater than 450ºC it will need to be protected. In this situation Tokai Carbon has developed a post treatment, Graphox, that will prolong the working lifetime of the material.
For other applications Graphite might need to have the porosity reduced to a minimum and for this Tokai Carbon can offer a resin impregnated product.
There are processes in which Graphite is used that are both very high temperature and very agressive atmospheres and also the process itself must not be contaminated with metallic impurities. In such cases Tokai Carbon is able to offer a purified Graphite.
