Oil & Gas
The first Industrial graphite grade POCO introduced to the market was POCO HPD (Hot Press Dies). This grade is specifically designed for the demanding requirements of manufacturers pressing dissimilar materials to enhance the properties of end products. In the Oil & Gas drilling market, POCO’s HPD is used to press hardening materials like diamond or carbides into hardened metal drill bits, allowing for longer lifetime and less replacement of those tools.
POCO also offers materials for use in pumping and compression equipment that is ubiquitous in the industry. The combination of wear-resistant graphite and POCO’s unique SUPERSiC silicon carbide is used in seals and bearings in liquid and gaseous pumping systems to ensure efficient operation over the life of the equipment.
