CARBON GRAPHITE BUSHES

Extreme temperature and self lubricating properties. 

Carbon has a low wear rate. Is mechanically strong in compression. Has a high strength-weight ratio. Has high strength at elevated temperatures. Has a low modulus of elasticity. Is electrically conductive. Has a relatively low density. Has good hydrodynamic bearing properties. Is non oxidizing to 500°C (dependent on grade). Has high thermal conductivity. Has high resistance to thermal shock. Is chemically inert. Does not swell in water. Does not weld.  Is easily machined to close tolerances. Is dimensionally stable.
