premium coke

An extremely well graphitizing carbon with a high degree of optical anisotropy (isochromatic areas of optical texture above about 100 µm) and which is characterized by a combination of the following properties which differ significantly from those of regular coke: high real density, low reversible thermal expansion and low ash content combined, in most cases, with low sulfur content.
Premium coke is mainly produced from tars or residues from petrochemistry by the delayed coking process. Also, refined coal tar pitches are used as precursors for premium coke production.
