Durablade®

The market leading material for vacuum pump vanes.

Duracarb®

A high strength, fine grained carbon graphite, making it a universal rubbing material for many applications.

Duracarb®-M

An antinomy impregnated carbon that substantially increases the life of mechanical seals in high load or dry running applications.

Duracarb®-R

Resin impregnated and therefore offers improved strength, reduced permeability, enhanced self lubricating and wear characteristics.


Erodex also offer a phenol resin impregnation facility, offering increased temperature resistance, durability and imperviousness. In addition to the graphites listed above, others are available. Please contact us for further details.
