Dylon Industries has developed two new epoxy-based graphite compounds known as Dylon Grade RX and Grade PX. Both products are blends of graphite and epoxy that combine to form high-strength bonds. Dylon Grade RX and PX can be used as heat-conductive compounds or electrically conductive adhesives. They can also be cast into intricate shapes or placed in grooves and sleeves for use as a permanent lubricant. Grade RX and PX can be machined, threaded, drilled, sawed, or buffed to a high finish. Both products may be used as a dry lubricant where high thermal and electrical conductivity are desired or needed.
