Development and application of flexible graphite and expanded graphite materials flexible graphite and expanded graphite are important products of deep processing of graphite. From the angle of material science, there is a great difference between the expanded graphite and the flexible graphite, which is two kinds of materials.
Expanded graphite is a loose porous structure material with excellent isolating and sealing properties. With the development of technology and new material applications, these two kinds of new materials are different in their application fields because of their different characteristics.
This paper will discuss the application status and development trend of these two kinds of materials which are closely related to each other in the field of chemical engineering.
