Graphite & Carbon uses in the Aerospace Industry

High Performance Graphite and Carbon  Solutions in Extreme Environments

The aerospace industry requires severe safety demands with components that are both reliable and resistant to extreme environments. Olmec Advanced Materials can rely on decades of experience in the graphite production industry to optimise the performance of applications and our graphite machining workshop is EN 9100 certified.

Graphite is in demand for surface tiles on space shuttles, in nuclear technology as a neutron moderator, and under extreme cold conditions such as in cryogenic applications. The properties of graphite make it perfect for use in the aerospace industry:

  • Can withstand extreme temperatures of up to 3000┬░C

  • Resistance to abrasion

  • High density of the isomolded graphite

  • Self-lubricating properties

  • Stable behaviour and friction coefficient in cryogenic environments
