Graphite is the stable form of carbon. Graphite is one of the softest; diamond is one of the hardest minerals known to man. Carbon is harder than graphite. For TEM and SEM applications, graphite is recommended.

Carbon /graphite films are most usable in TEM and SEM due to its value characteristics: uniformity amorphous and high transparent to electron beams. Because of low molecular weight and their unique structure (graphite have a sheet like structure, where the atoms all lie in a plane), carbon/graphite films have excellent mechanical stability, and even film thickness is about 1 - 2nm.

These carbon/graphite rods are CVP (Chemical Vapour Process) purity and spectrographic grade, grade 1, produced to ASTM tolerances or even tighter as well we have a technical grade. The technical grade has a typical impurity level of 50ppm or greater. Technical grade may be used in applications of non critical SEM coating applications.

Spectro-Grade Carbon Rods (graphite) have an impurity level of 2ppm or less with a maximum level element of each of 1 ppm. These rods are ideal for all TEM, SEM and all other critical applications.
