Two are better than one: CFC fixtures for high-temperature applications


Graphite Materials’ innovative DuComGrid® is the first choice for high-temperature applications of up to 1,325 °C. It combines two or more different materials for your carrier system. The base material is reinforced with a coating or additional elements made of ceramic or metal. There is no risk of contact reactions between metallic workpieces and CFC fixtures; application areas can be specifically expanded.

Customized to your needs

Graphite Materials offers CFC fixtures (also known as CFC racks) for numerous application areas that are constantly extended thanks to modern design programs. For example, heavy-duty racks for forming tools with a weight of up to five tons. Whilst steel distorts or deforms at high temperatures, CFC fixtures retain their shape. This makes them predictable and the components placed on them are protected against unwanted changes. In addition, CFC carrier systems
are resistant to the effects of chemicals and extremely durable.

Coding and individualization

Smart fixtures for smart users: Individual coding of our CFC fixtures for process control and maintenance ensures maximum process safety, plannable downtimes and clear identification.

Applications of DuComGrid®:

  • Case hardening via surface carburizing up to 1.350 °C (low-pressure carburizing with high-pressure gas quenching)

  • Case hardening with oil quenching

  • Structure adjustments and soldering processes up to 1.300 °C

  • Heat treatment under vacuum or in oxygen-free inert atmospheres
