There are two methods by which the Graphite is ‘coated’; CVD (Chemical Vapour Deposition) and CVI (Chemical Vapour Impregnation). These treatments transform the Graphite surface to SiC so the ‘coating’ expands and contracts with the Graphite and therefore largely eliminates cracking and spalling. This leads to longer life and increased durability. These materials were primarily designed for semiconductor production but their use in other industries is actively being researched.
