Graphite Metallizing Corporation of Yonkers, New York,  has been solving tough bearing problems for over 100 years. 

The company began in 1913 when two engineers developed a method for putting molten metal into carbon to create a new material called GRAPHALLOY, a graphite/metal alloy.

Used in the manufacture of bushings, bearings and other components for machinery and process equipment, GRAPHALLOY can be the solution to the toughest bearing, bushing, thrust washer, cam follower, or pillow block bearing design problem. 

It is available in over 100 grades with specific properties that meet a wide range of engineering solutions and specifications. 

FDA accepted grades of GRAPHALLOY are available for use in food service equipment. NSF® International has certified two grades of GRAPHALLOY material for use in municipal well pumps and water treatment plant applications.

GRAPHALLOY bearings have operated for 20 years and longer in some applications. Standard designs are available, but most GRAPHALLOY products are custom designed to the unique requirements of the specific application. 

Graphite Metallizing Corporation is ISO certified.
