Carbon and graphite for industrial use in Monterrey

Generally, coal is considered as coke -either petroleum coke, calcined needle coke, green coke or metallurgical coke- and anthracite. On the other hand, natural graphite -crystalline, amorphous and seam graphite- as well as synthetic graphite -either mixtures of pitch, tar and other additives that are carbonized and graphitized in furnaces- are classified as graphite.

Carbon and graphite for industrial use in Monterrey

Carbon is a chemical element from which there are different presentations in nature, such as graphite, graphene, diamonds, etc. Coal is a sedimentary rock very rich in carbon and mainly used as a fossil fuel. In ESGRAF we are specialists in the sale of coal and graphite for industrial use in a wide variety of presentations.

Generally, coal is considered as coke -either petroleum coke, calcined needle coke, green coke or metallurgical coke- and anthracite. On the other hand, graphite is classified as natural graphite -crystalline, amorphous and seam graphite- as well as synthetic graphite -either mixtures of pitch, tar and other additives that are carbonized and graphitized in furnaces-. Both products are marketed by ESGRAF.

What is the difference between carbon and graphite?

Although both are made of carbon, one of the chemical elements of which 96% of living organic matter is composed, the composition of their atomic structure is different, which gives them different characteristics and properties.

Graphite is one of the many presentations of carbon, it is a soft material and is obtained from carbonaceous rocks that have undergone metamorphism.

From both products different presentations are obtained, so that by means of these derivatives the sale of carbon and graphite is carried out.

Presentations of graphite and coal products

Some of the main presentations of high quality graphite and carbon based products that we offer in ESGRAF are:

  • Solid graphite, whether extruded, molded and isomolded synthetic graphite in bars, plates and blocks. In addition, we machine custom bushings, tubes and inserts as required.
  • We produce and sell synthetic, natural (crystalline and amorphous) and petroleum coke graphite powder in various particle sizes: from pellets to micronized.
  • Graphite lubricants and suspensions We have them in different grades and vehicles for dry and high temperature resistant lubrication.
  • Graphite machining. This is according to drawing or specifications.
  • We have high temperature resistant flexible graphite, furnace gaskets and furnace insulating felts.

Some of the industries in which graphite and carbon are most commonly used due to their characteristics and the advantages they offer are: glass, automotive, metallurgical, chemical, for batteries (alkaline, rechargeable lithium-ion and fuel), gaskets, transportation, agriculture, etc.

In ESGRAF we have 30 years of experience in the industry that support us as a reliable supplier, in addition to providing optimal solutions on the sale of carbon and graphite providing the best applications of our materials.

In addition, we have an extensive range of products for the sale of carbon and graphite as raw material or customized presentations.
