Synthetic graphite is available in extruded, vibration molded and isostatically molded forms. Many of our customers have little or no experience with the common production methods used to manufacture engineered synthetic graphite.
The strongest synthetic graphites are manufactured using the isostatic pressing technique. Attached is a video detailing the steps and benefits of the ''HIP'' or hot isostatic pressing process. Although, synthetic graphite is normally pressed in a cold rather than hot process the video demonstrated the basic theory behind the process and is educational for those desiring to understand the process basics.
