The Carbon Company – one of the world’s leading manufacturers of carbon-based products, signed a supply contract with Zhejiang Shangyu Jingsheng M&E Engineering Co., Ltd for delivery of SIGRATHERM® MFA rigid felts.
With an order volume of approximately €5 million (RMB 45 million), this is the biggest contract of its kind since SGL Group developed this new SIGRATHERM® MFA rigid graphite felts, a highly efficient, energy-saving material for thermal insulation.
Mr. Rüdiger Mackenthun, Vice President of Business Unit Graphite Specialties of SGL Group commented: “The cooperation with Shangyu Jingsheng M&E Engineering Co., one of the leading Chinese companies in the photovoltaics and semiconductor industry, forms part of the SGL Group’s growth strategy in Asia and will open up the Chinese photovoltaics market for SIGRATHERM® MFA. With our many years of technological experience and our broad product portfolio, we will make an important contribution to growth of the industry in China.”
SIGRATHERM® MFA, produced by SGL Group in Germany, is a shape-retentive, highpurity insulating material made of graphite fibers and a carbon binder. Thanks to its excellent thermal properties (suitable for temperatures up to 2,200 °C), and its high mechanical strength, it will be used as an insulation material for the hot zones of crystal growth surfaces in the production of silicone.
