Imerys Graphite & Carbon offers many solutions to improve electrical conductivity and reduce the risk of electrostatic discharge (ESD) for commercial and industrial applications such as batteries, polymer compounds, paints and coatings.
Leveraging our expertise in graphite materials and conductive carbon blacks, we work closely with our customers to identify the optimal solution for their particular needs. Our portfolio includes the following brands:
ENSACOⓇconductive and extra conductive carbon blacks are offered in both powder and soft granular form.
TIMREXⓇ : natural, synthetic and high aspect ratio graphite materials and water-based graphite dispersions
C-NERGY™ a unique range of synthetic graphites and conductive carbon blacks especially designed to enhance electrical conductivity in lithium-ion batteries.
SUPER PⓇ conductive carbon blacks are well suited for various battery applications.
Imerys Graphite & Carbon offers many solutions for thermal conductivity for a wide range of applications including polymer compounds, rubber, paints and coatings and PTFE industries.
If you are looking for additives to make your polymer compound thermally conductive, our TIMREXⓇand TIMREXⓇ C-THERMⓇ graphite materials can be used in the production of plastic, rubber, paints, coatings and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). Some examples of end applications include:
- heat exchangers
- heat sinks for LED or electronic parts
- polymer parts used in high operating temperatures
- power cables
- brake pads
Energy storage for Lithium-ion Batteries
Our C-NERGY ™ Actilion GHDR graphite grades for the active mass of the negative electrode are made with our patented chemical vapour deposition (CVD) coating – an environmentally friendly alternative to pitch coating.
In addition, we have just introduced a new line of additives for the active mass. Adding a small percent of our QX Quick Charge line to your active mass will significantly improve your battery’s charge and cycling rate, especially at low temperatures.
Imerys Graphite & Carbon’s TIMREXⓇ specialty graphites, dispersions, and coke offer superior self-lubrication properties for polymer applications, friction, and powder metallurgy applications. Our solutions are compatible for end applications including:
- windscreen blades coatings
- sintered brake pads
- clutch facings and linings
- self-lubrication of engineering parts (bearings, bushes, valve guides, valve seats)
- high alloy steels (cutting tools)
Imerys Graphite & Carbon supplies materials used as a carbon source in the manufacturing of:
- hard metals
- powder metallurgy
TIMREXⓇ synthetic graphite materials are used as a pore former in ceramics.
High Purity TIMREXⓇ Graphite and ENSACOⓇ carbon blacks are used as a carbon source in the production of tungsten carbide in hard metals and for powder metallurgy in the production of steel alloys.
