Applications of Graphite & its Various properties

Flake Graphite, an allotrope of carbon, is a critical resource which is used in over 150 applications in diverse industries and consumer goods.

Flake graphite constitutes a unique set of properties, accredited to its molecular structure, making it an essential material for multiple applications:

A crystalline form of Carbon
A solid state lubricant
Once intercalated, expands many-fold at onset temperature
Only non-metallic conductor
Sustains temperatures of >3000*c
Graphene is an atom layer of flake graphite

Flake Graphite is a critical resource it has over 150 different applications and is a supply threat
We understand it is user specific on standardisation and needs personalised customer service
We offer a stable Flake Graphite source with ongoing partnership with our customers, backed by a competent team with decades of operations experience

Structure and Properties

Flake graphite is hence, a material with unique set of properties making it the preferred and mostly non-replaceable choice in various industries products and applications. Though it is a non-metal, it has unique properties of both metals and nonmetals.

Being a novel material with this exclusive microstructure, flake graphite exhibits following properties:

  • A solid-state, high temperature dry lubricant
  • The only high-performance non-metallic conductor
  • Reflector as a single particle

Applications of graphite

The applications of flake graphite are divided in two parts:

  1. Primary - Particle size graded normal purity range products - These are conventional grade used in industrial applications and input material for downstream processing.
  2. Downstream - Specially processed and high purity downstream flake graphite products.

The two main variables determining the product type and the end application of flake graphite are its flake size and purity.The input raw material for the downstream specially processed graphite is primary flake graphite and hence we segregate applications on the parameter of flake size used by the application.
