Graphite is a crystallized body of carbon and a non-metallic material. It is silver gray color and soft , with a metallic luster. The melting point of graphite is extremely high, with considerable conductivity and heat conductivity, as well as good lubrication and plasticity. Graphite is chemically stable, acid-resistant, alkali-resistant and corrosion-resistant to organic solvents.
One of the main uses of graphite is to make refractory materials. Graphite is also used for conductive materials. In the electrical industry, graphite is widely used as electrodes, brushes, rods, carbon tubes, etc.
Graphite is also widely used in the production of battery and pencil cores, and sealing materials, corrosion-resistant materials, heat insulation, high temperature resistance, radiation-proof materials, etc
