Carbon powders and graphite powders are the basis for cost efficient serial production of carbon and graphite based components.

The porous bodies are bonded with chemically and thermally stable duroplastic binder systems - all with help of SGL Carbon’s established processes and know-how.

The highly porous carbon structure of CARBOPRINT C is an ideal basis for post-processing, such as infiltration with silicon or impregnation with polymers.

The advantages of CARBOPRINT® are:

  • Lightweight - low density & open porosity
  • Form stable at high temperatures
  • Freedom of (material) design
  • Further post processing such as thermal treatment and densification possible on demand
