A daily introduction to graphite
Graphite can also be divided into natural graphite and artificial graphite two categories, natural Graphite from graphite deposits; natural Graphite can also be divided into flake graphite, soil graphite, and massive Graphite. Raw mining of Graphite contains more impurities, so the need for mineral processing and reducing its impurity content can be used; the primary use of natural Graphite is the production of refractory materials, brushes, flexible graphite products, lubricants, lithium-ion battery anode materials, production of some carbon products sometimes also add a certain amount of natural Graphite. In the carbon industry, the largest exhibition is a variety of artificial graphite products. Fake graphite products are generally made of petroleum coke and asphalt coke, which are easy to graphitize through a series of processes such as batching, kneading, molding, roasting, graphitization (high-temperature heat treatment), and mechanical processing, and the production cycle is as long as dozens of days. There are also many kinds of artificial Graphite, such as single crystal graphite, polycrystalline stone ink, pyrolytic Graphite, highly oriented pyrolytic Graphite, polyimide synthetic graphite, graphite fibers, and so on. Most artificial graphite products belong to a class of polycrystalline stone ink. The main effect of artificial Graphite is the graphite electrode used in arc steelmaking furnaces and mineral thermal furnaces. The graphite electrode is a conductive material with high-temperature resistance and corrosion resistance. Artificial Graphite in many other industrial sectors also has a wide range of uses, such as mechanical industry with a motor brush, precision casting mold, EDM processing mold, and wear-resistant parts, chemical industry electrolytic cell use of conductive or corrosion-resistant equipment, high purity and high strength artificial graphite is nuclear industry sector reactor structural materials and used as missile rocket components. Graphite can also be made of heat dissipation, sealing materials, heat insulation materials, and radiation protection materials; functional graphite materials are widely used in metallurgy, the chemical industry, mechanical equipment, new energy vehicles, nuclear power, electronic information, aerospace and national defense and other industries. According to the report "Vital Materials for the European Union" released by the European Commission, Graphite is listed among 14 minerals in short supply.
