GRAPHALLOY(reg) graphite/metal alloy self-lubricating bushings and bearings work in hostile environments from cryogenic to 750F, even in solvents and acids, and solve difficult applications to extend machinery service life and lower maintenance costs in pumps, mixers, ovens and furnaces, dryers, and dampers. GRAPHALLOY materials do not melt on cold flow and provide a low coefficient of friction. The material is corrosion-resistant in most liquids including sulfuric acid and caustics, and does not gall when run with close tolerances against rotating metal elements.
