GRAPHITAR® carbon graphite materials from USG are widely used in the Aerospace industry in military and commercial applications as well as critical components on the space shuttle.

GRAPHITAR performs to superior standards and has been reliably used for hundreds of thousands of hours in many types of applications and environments.


Materials have been approved for use on many of the main shaft seals fitted to engines manufactured by the main engine manufacturers. Airborne auxiliary equipment also uses GRAPHITAR seals and bearings in pumps and fuel applications. GRAPHITAR materials are also found in ground based jet engines in power generation situations.

GRAPHITAR materials are designed to perform to specific requirements in high temperature and are manufactured to the highest standards of quality. Ground breaking carbon/carbon and carbon silicon carbide materials are increasingly being evaluated for extreme duties of temperature resistance strength and light weight are an issue.

Our engineered are always available to discuss new materials or modifications to existing grades.
