The report describes the room-temperature properties of small specimens of molded multicrystalline graphite. The specimens are: a pitch-bonded petroleum coke flour 'standard' mix; several pitch-petroleum coke-thermal carbon mixes; mixes containing furfuryl alcohol as binder; and a mix in which a heavy metal oxide was substituted for part of the petroleum coke. In addition, the room-temperature properties (density, orientation factor, dynamic and static flexural moduli, ultimate flexural strength, and flexural elastic limit) were measured for a commercial, high-density (1.861 gm/cc), impregnated, molded graphite
