Metallized Carbon is a Custom Manufacturer of Engineered Self-Lubricating Carbon/Graphite Products

Metcar is the trade name for a unique family of oil-free, self-lubricating, materials that have been under continuous development by Metallized Carbon Corporation for over sixty years

Metallized Carbon Corporation materials are used to produce machine parts for applications where relative motion or rubbing of components must occur with low friction and low wear. Metcar Grades can run dry in air or other gasses and they can run submerged in low viscosity liquids. They can run at high loads and high speeds at both high and low temperatures. Metcar materials rely mainly on graphite for their self lubricating properties. Fine particles... (more)

Tooling

To produce products at a rapid rate and drive your cost down, you might have to invest in machinery that is customized to your design; that is "tooling". This machinery will vary depending on the product, but can range from plastic molds to custom branding stamps, and so on.

Production

"Production run" means making a lot of one product at once. The factories listed under "production" can produce small and/or large quantities. The minimum order for a production run can vary from factory to factory (some have no minimum, some require a dozen, and some require up to 1,000 to be made at once)
