Electric arc furnace steelmaking has become the mainstream steelmaking process, and the amount of graphite electrodes required is gradually increasing. Ultra-high power (UHP) graphite electrode has the advantages of strong conductivity, high temperature resistance and low resistivity.
► UHP graphite electrode supplier
China and India are the largest and second-largest steel producing countries through the EAF method globally. Furthermore, among the leading players, five players (Showa Denko K.K. (Japan), Dan Carbon Group (China), Tokai Carbon Co. Ltd. (Japan), Graphite India Limited (India), and Fangda Carbon New Material Co. Ltd. (China).
DanCarbon main product range is involved with varieties of RP (regular power), HP (high power) and UHP (ultra-high power) graphite electrodes, graphite blocks and special heterogeneous graphite and other carbon products, with an annual capacity of 120,000 tons. Its products have the characteristics of high strength, good conductivity, high bending resistance and low unit energy consumption. They are widely used in metallurgy, chemical industry and machinery industries, sold all over the China domestic markets, and exported to Southeast Asia, Japan, South Korea, Europe, America, Africa and many other countries and regions.

► Graphite Electrodes price evolution in the last ten years (2010 - 2020).
In 2020, the market price of graphite electrode in China has dropped significantly, with the price of ultra-high 550mm and 600mm graphite electrode dropping by 17% compared to the end of March and 60% compared to the same period in 2019. At present, the price of graphite electrode is basically close to the historical low, but the price of raw materials is relatively high at this stage, so suitable for ordering.
