Rain Carbon Inc. plays an important role in the steel industry, providing the pitches used in the production of graphite electrodes for electric-arc furnaces -- and more.

Our steel-sector market presence also includes supplying high-carbon calcined petroleum coke products for use as a recarburizer. Elsewhere, our RÜTGERS-brand CARBORES® resins are used as a substitute binder in refractories for the steel industry, offering dramatically reduced concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
