Its most prominent feature is its heat resistance and high temperature working range. Its mechanical strength is weak and has a very low friction coefficient.
Therefore, it gives very good results in bearings and bushings if the opposite surface is smooth.
Alloying (carbon-graphite-glass fiber and bronze) can be made to minimize wear and increase mechanical strength.
No substance undergoes chemical reactions.
It has excellent chemical resistance.
It is heat resistant and can be used in steam.
There is no harm in direct contact with food.
It has a wide working range.
It has a wide usage area due to its non-flammability.
Dimensional stability is not very good, attention should be paid to tolerances during processing.
