GRAPHALLOY®

GRAPHLON GM 860® — AN ABRASION-RESISTANT PUMP BUSHING MATERIAL
DEVELOPED BY GRAPHITE METALLIZING CORP

 

YONKERS, NY (January 2009) — GRAPHLON GM 860® is an abrasion-resistant bushing material that protects pumps and helps prolong pump life. Developed by Graphite Metallizing, the material is a tough, polymer/graphite-based alloy used in the manufacture of pump bushings and other critical-wear parts.

GRAPHLON GM 860® provides exceptional abrasion resistance in harsh environments, has high compressive strength and can handle temperature extremes from -100˚ F to 300˚ F. It is inert to most noxious chemicals, including acid mine water, hydrogen sulfide and jet fuel, and does not swell in water.

GRAPHLON GM 860® was developed as a replacement for traditional pump materials which are prone to damage from highly-abrasive suspensions. River water pumping stations and down hole sump pumps are two examples of key applications. The material also performs exceptionally well under both dry running and severe-duty abrasive-contaminated conditions.

Graphite Metallizing Corp., established in 1913, produces GRAPHALLOY® a graphite/metal alloy bearing material used in the manufacture of self-lubricating bearings and components for machinery and process systems.
