Description

CSXTM graphite is higher in strength and lower in permeability than CS™ graphite. It is a material for applications requiring higher densities, better mechanical properties, and less porosity than the CSTM material. CSXTM graphite has a particularly low ash content which enhances its oxidation resistance.
