FormulaPT™ are carbon and graphitic powders, specifically developed by Superior Graphite for the Polymer market in need of a polymer additive. In plastics, graphite is used as a polymer additive mainly for improving tribological and conductive characteristics. FormulaPT™ product line includes synthetic and natural graphite powders in non-purified and thermally purified forms, calcined petroleum coke and our unique Resilient Graphitic Carbons (RGC™). FormulaPT™ products are polymer additives used in a variety of applications including engineered and high performance thermoplastics, thermoset resins, PTFE, food contact, coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers.

Thermally Purified Graphite

Processing carbonaceous materials through Superior Graphite’s exclusive Electro-Thermal Treatment/Purification Technology removes organic and inorganic impurities such as quartz, silica, and iron, which could act as abrasives. Thermally purified graphite and graphitic carbons are inert, which offers chemical stability while also significantly increasing thermal and electrical conductivity of polymers. In addition to increasing lubrication by lowering the coefficient of friction (CoF), our proprietary ‘Resilient Carbon’ fillers also reduce wear.
