Fine chemicals (source Wikipedia) are complex, single, pure chemical substances, produced in limited quantities in multipurpose plants by multistep batch chemical or biotechnological processes. They are described by exacting specifications, used for further processing within the chemical industry and sold for more than $10/kg.
Fine chemicals are produced in limited volumes (< 1000 tons/year) and at relatively high prices (> $10/kg) according to exacting specifications, mainly by traditional organic synthesis in multipurpose chemical plants.
This application includes additives for plastics like fire retardant, anti-oxidant, etc…
Main advantage of graphite material compared to metallic material is the true multipurpose ability of our grades. See corrosion chart for comparison
Our graphite are not sensitive to fluorides, chlorides or even oxydative media with our grades GT-FLON and GT OXY FLON.
GT grades have extremely wide corrosive resistance to most chemical media.
Most of traditional graphites, use big grain graphite, impregnated with phenolic resin which is sensitive to some solvent like methanol as an example. Solvent will create a swelling effect in the resin which will generate mechanical stress in graphite and result in earlier failure.
GT grades has not such issues and can withstand all known solvent at high temperature.
For applications requesting clean processes, GT has solutions with cleaning treatment on materials.
Food grade materials tested with migration tests for graphite and gaskets are possible.
