Graphite powder has a wide range of applications. According to its applications, graphite powder could be divided into:
- Crystalline graphite powder
The application of crystalline graphite powder is most widely used. It is also the raw material to process other graphite powder. Its specification is from 32-12000 mesh. Crystalline graphite powder is with good toughness, excellent thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance. It could be used as refractory material, wear resistant lubrication material, conducting material, casting, moulding pressing and high temperature metallurgy material, etc.
- Colloidal graphite powder
Colloidal graphite is made of 2µ graphite particles dispersed in organic solvents of the average form, Colloidal graphite is a thick black wire suspension liquid. Properties of Colloidal graphite powder with high quality natural graphite, high temperatures have special antioxidant, self-lubricating and plasticity, and has good electrical conductivity, heat adhesion, release mainly used in sealing, metallurgy and other industries.
3. Ultra-fine graphite powder
Ultra-fine graphite powder specifications generally between 8000-10000, the main application of release agent in powder metallurgy, production of graphite crucibles, batteries and conductive material additives, etc.
4. Nano-graphite powder
Main specifications of nano-graphite powder for the D30, 50, 100, and 400 nm, Nano-graphite technology is more sophisticated, low rates of production, so prices are relatively high, mainly used in anti-corrosion Coatings, lubricant additives, additives for lubricating grease, precision graphite sealing industry, in addition, Nano-graphite also has a high value in scientific research institutions.
5. high-purity graphite powder
High purity graphite powder by definition is the result of a high degree of purification, its electrical conductivity is generally metal 100 times, and good lubrication. High purity graphite powder is mainly used to produce high strength graphite electrodes and conductive coating and so on.
