Carbon and Graphite
are ceramic materials. Their unique properties and property combinations make them indispensable for many products, key applications and markets.
Supporting Environmental Protection
The sector itself is committed to resource and energy efficiency in its own production and nearly two thirds of the industry’s sales go into products which contribute to a careful and efficient use of natural resources in its customer industries, such as, for example, in the steel, aluminium, and automotive industries.
The Carbon and Graphite Industry produces the material as prebaked or graphitised blocks, as machined or extruded precision products, fibres, felt, foil, powder, carbon black or even in nanometer sized molecules.
