Graphite powder is a naturally-occurring material form of crystalline carbon. It is a native element mineral mostly found in metamorphic and igneous rocks. It is extremely soft and cleaves with very light pressure. It has a very low specific gravity. In comparison, it is extremely resistant to heat and nearly inert in contact with almost any other material. These attractive properties give it a wide range of utilization in metallurgy and manufacturing.
Graphite powder has a wide range of applications in writing materials for instance it is utilized in making the lead pencils. It is the main ingredient in lubricants such as grease. It is also applied in the car brakes and clutches. Moreover, it is used in paints and in refractory material. It assists in the production of glass and steel as well as the processing of iron.
Graphite powder has the ability to fast-moving neutrons. So it concludes that it is used in reactors to stabilize nuclear reactions. Crystalline flake graphite is applied in the manufacturing of carbon electrodes, brushes, and plates needed in dry cell batteries. It also employed in the electrical industry. Interestingly, natural graphite is also dealt with synthetic graphite. This kind of graphite is useful in lithium-ion batteries.
Graphite powder can be used to manufacture graphene sheets. These sheets are 100 times stronger and 10 times lighter than steel. This derivative of graphite is further employed in making lightweight and strong sports equipment. Many are supposing future applications in the field of the medical and aerospace industry.
Graphite powder: It exhibits high electrical conductivity; chemical resistance and low light absorbance property make it the perfect material for future applications for example medical implants such as artificial hearts, flexible electronic devices, and aircraft parts. Graphite foils are employed for sealing in the chemicals and pharmaceutical industries.
