Metcar’s engineered carbon graphite materials have solved challenging mechanical and industrial lubrication problems since 1945.
Consistently outperforming conventional oil & grease, our proprietary process enables us to develop unique carbon graphite products that no one else in the industry can replicate.
Metcar’s custom-impregnated and pre-engineered carbon graphite material grades for bearings, bushings, seal rings, air bleed valves, vanes, and more perform at the highest level in the most demanding applications on Earth and in space.
Metcar is featured in Pumps & Systems April 2020: Tips for selecting seal face materials in harsh conditions. (See pages 72-73)
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.
In these oppressive environments, aerospace engineers require high performance materials that push the envelope for what is possible. The material that possesses the heat resistance and self lubricating characteristics that satisfy these stringent requirements is highly specialized Metcar® graphite.
Metcar began developing carbon/graphite materials in 1970 and since then has developed hundreds of material grades suitable for use in industries ranging from aerospace to industrial.
