GrafTech International Ltd. Manufactures a range of graphite electrodes, products essential to the production of electric arc furnace (EAF) steel and various other ferrous and nonferrous metals. The company also produces needle coke products, which are the primary raw material needed in the manufacture of graphite electrodes. The company also manufactures carbon, graphite, and semi-graphite refractory products, which protect the walls of blast furnaces and submerged arc furnaces. Segments The company operates in the following segments, Industrial Materials and Engineered Solutions. Industrial Materials segment The Industrial Materials segment manufactures and delivers graphite electrodes, refractory products and needle coke products. Graphite Electrode Products: Graphite electrodes are consumed primarily in EAF steel production, the steel making technology used by all ‘mini-mills’. Graphite electrodes are also consumed in the refining of steel in ladle furnaces and in other smelting processes, such as the production of titanium dioxide. Electrodes act as the conductors of electricity in the furnace, generating heat to melt scrap metal, iron ore, or other raw materials used to produce steel or other metals. The electrodes are consumed in the course of that production. Refractory Products: The company manufactures carbon and semi-graphite, HotPressed refractory bricks, as well as other graphite and carbon refractory blocks, all of which are used primarily for their durability in demanding high temperature melting environments. Common applications are in blast furnaces and submerged arc furnaces for ferroalloy production include cooling courses in the hearth bottoms for heat distribution and removal, backup linings in hearth walls for improved heat transfer and lintels through copper coding plates where a single brick cannot span the cooling plate. The company’s refractories are primarily suitable for the lower part of these furnaces. Petroleum Needle Coke and Coke Products: The company produces petroleum needle coke. Needle coke is the primary raw material in the manufacture of graphite electrodes, which are consumed in EAF steel production. Petroleum needle coke, a crystalline form of carbon derived from decant oil is used primarily in the production of graphite electrodes. Graphite electrode producers combine petroleum or pitch needle coke with pitch binders and other ingredients to form graphite electrodes. Engineered Solutions segment This segment includes advanced electronics technologies, advanced graphite materials, advanced composite materials, and advanced materials. Advanced electronics technology products consist of electronic thermal management solutions, fuel cell components, and sealing materials. Advanced graphite materials are synthetic graphite products used in various areas due to their properties and the ability to tailor them to specific solutions. These products are used in transportation, alternative energy, metallurgical, chemical, oil and gas exploration, and various other industries. Advanced composite materials are carbon products that are woven into various shapes to primarily support the aerospace and defense industries. Advanced materials use carbon and graphite powders as components or additives in various industries, including metallurgical processing, battery and fuel cell components, and polymer additives. Advanced Graphite Materials: The company manufactures extruded, molded, and isomolded graphite blocks weighing approximately 10 metric tons and machined graphite parts used in various applications, including metallurgy, high-temperature industrial, and alternative energy applications. In addition, it produces a line of high temperature (> 1200C) insulation for induction furnaces, high temperature vacuum furnaces, direct solidification furnaces, and other high temperature furnace applications. Advanced Composite Materials: The company designs, manufactures, and tests advanced composites used in various applications, including ultra-light-weight thermal protection, high-strength heat shields, and various other components. Markets include automotive, petrochem
