Calcined Petroleum Coke

Petroleum coke (petcoke) is a carbonaceous solid derived from oil refinery coker units or other cracking processes. Calcined Petroleum Coke (CPC) is the product from calcining Petroleum Coke. It is a form of highly electrically conductive, densed Carbon with very low specific Electrical Resistance, and having Fixed Carbon of approximately 98.5 - 99.5%. Raw Coke is Calcined to develop specific properties to make it suitable for industrial purposes. We process quality CPC to match sieve and grade requirements of customers. At times, the product meets 6 different sieve / size parameters. Available in lumps, granules, fines, and powders upto -325 mesh ASTM (99% passing through).

End Use: Carbon pick-up in Foundries, Friction Products, Corrosion Resistant Lining and Products, Clutch Carbon Rings, Aluminum, Graphite Electrode, Steel, Titanium Dioxide and other Carbon Consuming Industries etc.

Natural Graphite

The mineral Graphite is an allotrope of carbon. Graphite is an electrical conductor, a semimetal. It is, consequently, useful in such applications as arc lamp electrodes. Graphite is the most stable form of carbon under standard conditions. Although it is not normally used as fuel because it is difficult to ignite. Processed in Flakes and Powders upto -325 mesh ASTM (98% passing through). We offer Graphites of natural crystalline flaky and also amophors in nature and fixed carbon ranges from 80% to 96%.

End Use: Friction Products, Lubricants, Coatings, Refractories, Pencil Leads, Crucibles, etc.

Synthetic Graphite

Synthetic Graphite is a manufactured product made by high - temperature treatment of amorphous carbon materials. The primary feedstock used for making Synthetic Graphite is Calcined Petroleum Coke and Coal Tar Pitch, both of which are composed of highly graphitizable forms of carbon. Processed in fine granules and powders upto -325 mesh ASTM (99 % passing through). In fixed carbons of 95% to 99% purity.

End Use: Friction Products, Carbon pick ups.


Vermiculite is a unique, naturally occurring, inert laminar mineral that finds use in many construction, industrial, home, agricultural and garden products and systems. Chemically a hydrated magnesium aluminium silicate, Vermiculite expands when heated to form aultra lightweight aggregate. This product is non-combustible, compressible, highly absorbent, non-reactive and totally inert.

End Use: High-temperature Insulation, Refractory Insulation, Acoustic Panels, Fireproofing of Structural Steel and Pipes, Friction and Brake Products.
