Pyrolytic Graphite and Coatings

Ultra-pure, high-performance

Popular as a coating for sealing machined graphite hardware, pyrolytic graphite (PG) forms an impermeable protective layer and possesses mechanical, thermal and electrical properties beyond what is achievable with conventional graphite. An ultra-pure product, PG is near theoretical density and is highly anisotropic (300 W/m-K in ab direction, 3.5 W/m-K in c). PG is chemically inert and is stable at extreme temperatures (up to 3000°C).

Features and Benefits

  • Chemically inert to act as a protection layer against certain chemical corrosion
  • Ultra-high purity minimizes risk of contamination
  • Stable to 3000°C to allow for dependability in high-temperature applications
  • Impermeability allows for use in high-vacuum applications
  • Self-lubricating to eliminate the need for special tooling during machining
  • Low etch rate results in an etch-resistant layer in certain chemical environments
  • Directional electrical and thermal characteristics can be utilized as electrical heating elements and heat shield materials at high temperatures
  • Non-dusting allows for use in a vacuum environment
