How Antimony Works to Effectively Seal Low Viscosity Fluids

Manufacturers have struggled with proper sealing of low viscosity fluids for years. Effectively stopping materials like Freon refrigerants, liquid oxygen, propane, and acetone are vital to production for industry leaders. Luckily, there's now a solution to this (un)impenetrable problem: antimony-impregnated carbon graphite.

The Top 3 Benefits of Carbon Graphite Board Dryer Bearings

Gypsum wallboard is one of the most common materials incorporated in residential and commercial construction. It's used universally by amateurs and professionals alike, and as such, manufacturers are driven to meet high demands by creating consistent, reliable means of production. 

7 High Temp Applications for High-Performance Materials

New materials these days can perform under an incredible amount of stress, and many of them perform vital roles in the daily grind of our communities and businesses. The quality of materials has had to improve to keep up with the increasingly complex environments that materials are put through. One of the most taxing elements that would tear down traditional materials is heat. These days, modern mechanical parts perform incredible feats everywhere from rocket ships to ovens. Here are some applications where new high-performance parts have replaced traditional materials, so that when they find themselves in hot water, they’re actually quite at home:

Fire Safety in Oil and Gas Refineries: Why Materials Matter

In order to avoid worst case scenarios, oil and gas refineries must design their systems with disaster in mind. Given the volatile substances they deal with, fire safety is a paramount concern. If an oil line has no means of effectively cutting off or containing oil flow in the event of a fire, situations which are already dangerous can become fatal.

How Graphite Helps Aerospace Engineers Push the Limits

The aerospace industry leaves no margin for error, demanding materials that can withstand high altitudes, high speeds, and extreme temperatures upwards of 1,000 degrees to meet the strict safety requirements of the industry.
