Our POCO graphite materials are ideal for the production of heater elements that exhibit long life and consistent performance. POCO materials’ uniformity and isotropy, combined with fine particle size, ensures uniform heating, regardless of the direction of current flow.
These properties allow for excellent control of temperature profiles. High tensile, compressive and flexural strengths allow the designer to use a smaller cross section without fear of breakage. This design advantage is used to increase the electrical resistance of the element, thus reducing the current required from the power source.
Uniformity of our graphite ensures that no hot spots develop
