SGL Carbon increases Graphite Electrodes prices
in Europe

WIESBADEN,  September  10,  2003.  SGL Carbon  increases  the prices of its
graphite  electrodes  in Europe  (incl.  all of Turkey) by 100 Euro per ton. The
increase is effective immediately for all new businesses.

SGL Carbon will honour these new prices for all orders received before November
30, 2003, and for shipments before December 31, 2004. This price increase was
triggered by significantly higher energy prices supported by tightness of
graphite electrode supply and its key raw materials world-wide.
