Flake graphite is widely used in refractory materials and coatings in metallurgical industry. Such as magnesia carbon bricks and crucibles. It is a desulfurizing accelerator for the refining industry, a pencil lead for the light industry, a carbon brush for the electrical industry, an electrode for the battery industry, and a catalyst for the fertilizer industry. After in-depth processing, flake graphite can produce graphite emulsion, which is used for lubricants, release agents, wire drawing agents, conductive coatings, etc. It can also produce expanded graphite for raw materials of flexible graphite products, such as flexible graphite seals and flexible graphite composite products.
The varieties of flake graphite are classified according to the carbon content, such as high-purity graphite with a carbon content of 99.99-99.9%; High carbon graphite with a carbon content of 99-94%; Medium carbon graphite with a carbon content of 93-80%; Low carbon graphite with a carbon content of 75-50%. When classified according to the size of the particle size, the particle size smaller than W38 is fine graphite.
In terms of the properties of flake graphite, the flake crystal is complete, the flake is thin and the toughness is good. It has excellent physical and chemical properties, good temperature resistance, self lubrication, thermal conductivity, conductivity, thermal shock resistance, corrosion resistance and other properties.
