Graphite is well known as a material which has high-temperature thermostable property, chemical resistance against acid and alkaline state also is very easy to environment. Nowadays the need of graphite product is increasing rapidly because of its advantages. In this paper, the mechanical property of newly developed graphite products with high density is investigated with especially in compression test. I introduced the graphite specimens for this study by NGF method with two expandable graphite and compared to the specimens of commercial graphite sheet from expanded graphite which made by the rolling process. I investigated the characteristics of these materials by measuring specific weight, hardness, compressive strength and investigating structures by SEM, It is verified that the graphite products with NGF method has superior properties for using gasket materials than that of commercial graphite sheet.
