Graphite Felt & Carbon Felt

Graphite Felt & Carbon Felt

Carbon felt and graphite felt for high temperature furnace insulation

Details

Carbon felt and graphite felt are designed for use as high-temperature insulation in vacuum furnaces and inert gas furnaces. Our PAN-based carbon and graphite felt is light in weight and has low thermal conductivity. It can be used in oxidizing temperatures up to 400 °C and in vacuum or protective atmospheres up to 3200 °C.

The carbon and graphite felts are processed from a polyacrylonitrile precursor and fired to graphitizing temperatures. Primarily used as high-temperature insulation in inert or vacuum atmospheres offering high stability through rapid thermal cycling.

Distinctive Characteristics:

  • High stability with low shrinkage
  • Low density and thermal mass
  • Greater efficiency in heating and cooling
  • Low thermal conductivity
  • Uniformity throughout the material
  • Available in different lengths, widths, and thickness
  • Can be halogen purified to reduce impurity levels into the ppm range
