Graphite Felts is a high quality insulation for vacuum and inert gas furnaces where the maximum temperature can be up to 3000°C.
Rayon Graphite Felt is the ideal choice for vacuum furnaces or process temperatures above 2000°C due to its low shrinkage and negligible gas evolution below 3000°C.
Rayon Graphite Felt also features enhanced oxidation resistance. For special requirements, it can be purified to less than 10 ppm in total ash content.
