Metallized Carbon Corporation Announces Carbon-Graphite Gathering Shoes, Pad Wheels and Wobble Wheels for Manufacturing Fiberglass

Metallized Carbon Corporation, a global leader in the manufacture of oil-free, self-lubricating, carbon-graphite materials for severe service lubrication applications, announces the availability of carbon-graphite for use in fiberglass gathering shoes, pad wheels and wobble wheels.

They are available in several grades of Metcar’s proprietary carbon-graphite material.

Carbon-graphite gathering shoes are used to guide and gather together individual glass filaments to form bundles of filaments called “fiberglass strands,” which are produced as part of the fiberglass manufacturing process. Metcar materials are low in friction, so they prevent breakage of the glass filaments. Materials that do not provide sufficient lubrication degrade, fray and even break the filament as it is pulled or guided through the process.

“Metcar self-lubricating carbon graphite materials are particularly suited for this application because of their excellent lubricating qualities and good resistance to wear,” said Matthew Brennan, Chief Operating Officer of Metcar.  “Our technical department is available for design assistance and can develop a customized solution with the best Metcar grade for specific fiberglass manufacturing applications.”
