Fields of use for our synthetic graphite and carbon products.


Carbone Savoie is a major supplier of cathodes for the primary aluminium industry. We supply aluminium to electrolysis plants throughout the world.


Graphite specialities are used for a wide range of varied and challenging applications including aviation, semi-conductors, energy and transport.


Global demand for batteries is growing rapidly. Synthetic graphite powder is used in anode material for li-ion batteries.


Carbone Savoie is a leading supplier of carbon and graphite powder for recarburants.


Solid synthetic graphite can be used in many lubricant applications. Carbone Savoie guarantees the purity and stability of its artificial graphite.


Carbone Savoie is developing an electrode paste that meets the high environmental quality standards of the ferroalloy industry.


Our primary concern is the health and safety of all our colleagues

Safety at work

Our primary responsibility to our employees is to guarantee them a safe and secure work environment


An ambitious investment policy to optimise, modernise, computerise and improve


Carbone Savoie has been making carbon and synthetic graphite for more than 100 years

Development of a Clean Sealing Paste (HCF8O²) and High Performance Cathode Assembly with Improved Electrical Properties (HPCA)

Development of a Clean Sealing Paste (HCF8O²) and High Performance Cathode Assembly with Improved Electrical Properties (HPCA)

Carbone Savoie has developed a new sealing paste in order to substitute coal tar pitch binder pitch and suppress all hazards linked to the PAH components. The electrical resisivity has been improved to insure a good electrical contact between collector bars and cathode blocks.
One recent development is the High Performance Cathode Assemblies (HPCA) produced in collaboration between Carbone Savoie and Metsol. The contact between cathode blocks and collector bars is done with sealing paste, together with electrically compensating plates and contact plugs to improve current distribution and enhance vertical current.
