Advanced materials are required for demanding applications. Reducing friction, wear and heat generation are reasons carbon graphite materials are used. With self-lubricating properties, along with chemical resistance and dimensional stability, make carbon graphite an excellent choice for either dry or wet applications.
When high contact pressures and running speeds are required, silicon carbide materials can be used. With the increased hardness and stiffness, silicon carbide materials can be run against carbon graphite or themselves.
