Industrial Applications

With the resulting wide variety of material modifications and grades designed to meet individual application requirements, the specialty graphite grades of the ‘Industrial Applications’ segment are well placed to act as key materials in the primary and secondary metallurgy sectors, tool, glass and ceramics manufacture, the electrochemical and nuclear industries, and also in laboratory and medical technology.

Aluminium industry

Graphite is used due to it's heat resistance, chemical resistant and non wettable properties when in contact with molten Aluminium.

Typical uses could be

  • Graphite shafts and graphite impellers are used in fixed and rotary purification and flux feeding systems for aluminium degassing and casting
  • Graphite plates and rolls for aluminium extrusion presses
  • Casting rings for hot top casting or for gas slip system
  • Graphite fluxing tubes.

Furnaces and high temperature applications

Graphite is used in all makes of vacuum furnaces for the heat treatment and processing of metallic and ceramic products, we can supply a range of heating elements, connectors, furnace hearths and bases, plus jigs, fixtures and – in fact we can supply the complete hot zone or a nut and bolt and a washer if that is all that is required. We often machine parts on a fast turnaround basis.

Chemical Applications

Graphite chemical resistance and high temperature stability lends itself to use in these corrosive applications as vessel linings, bricks, blocks, tiles, heat exchangers, columns, seals, wear plates and bearings among many other applications.


We manufacture special parts for aircraft turbines in carbon and carbon fibre composites.


Graphite is used in most applications handling hot glass components

  • Container glass – take out tongs, dead plates, mould protectors, stacker bars
  • Flat Glass – furnace bases and side plates, tin pumps and insulation
  • Sculptural glass – mould and manipulation tongs
  • Fibre Glass – Graphite rollers for stretching the glass fibre
  • Optical fibre – susceptors and insulators for the stretcher furnaces


We manufacture graphite chills, launders, run outs, extrusion guides, bearings, seals, crucibles, heaters, boats, hot pressing dies, continuous casting dies, R&D test coupons, sample moulds, evaporator dishes and many more.


We manufacture graphite sintering moulds and dies, HIP moulds, bars , blocks and dies and supply raw blocks, cylinders and plates of graphite for customers to manufacture their own parts.

Continuous Casting

We supply a range of con cast dies from flat die sections to round billet dies for a variety of materials and applications – please contact us with your con cast needs
