Graphite and Its Uses

 

SPHERICAL GRAPHITE

lithium ion batteries

7-10 times more graphite than lithium is needed to produce the anode used in lithium ion batteries. The growth of the electric vehicle and energy storage sector has huge implications as it will have a significant effect on demand.

  

EXPANDABLE GRAPHITE

consumer electronics, heat and corrosion resistant gaskets, fire retardants, etc

The material is pressed into sheets to create a foil an be cut into shapes and used in a variety of applications. During the expansion process, the graphite retains its excellent inherent properties such as electrical and thermal conductivity and chemical resistivity.

Spherical Graphite - is produced through fine grinding, purification and spheritisation – processing the flat flake into. a sphere of concentrate. It is primarily used to manufacture anodes for lithium (Li) ion batteries.

Expandable Graphite  - is made by immersing natural flake graphite in a bath of chromic acid, then concentrated sulfuric acid, which forces the crystal lattice planes apart, thus expanding the graphite. The expanded graphite can be used to make graphite foil
