Carbon composition resistor, Physics

MANUFACTURING: These resistors do not require substrate. Resistive material is a mixture of finally ground graphite, filter and resin blander. Filter is usually silica. The mix is then extruded and chopped to require sized. The rods are then sintered either in hydrogen or nitrogen at 1000 to 14000C. Sheet resistance is controlled by changing the quantity of carbon and filter.
