Ultrafine-grain graphite for specific applications. Its name is derived from the method of production (isostatically pressed; equal pressure from every side). The main features of isostatic graphite are high strength, high density and an isotropic structure. It is therefore used in all applications where the mechanical properties of conventional graphite are inadequate.

Details on properties, manufacturing, and typical applications of isostatic graphite can be found under SIGRAFINE® Fine grain graphite
