Natural Graphite, beyond the pencil.
The uses of Natural Graphite are many; essential in many industrial fields, it finds application in foundries, in the production of refractory products, is the main component of high-performance lubricants and is finding new applications in the emerging energy and electronics sectors.
It is extracted from mineral deposits in China, Africa, North and South America and Europe, subsequently processed, it is selected to obtain a variety with different levels of purity and particle size.
Natural graphite is classified in macrocrystalline (flakes) and microcrystalline (amorphous) form according to the crystalline structural characteristics.
The layered structure of its composition is precisely what gives it its unique properties:
Heat Resistance: > 3000° C in free atmosphere
Electrical and Thermal Conductivity
Resistance to thermal shocks, acids and oxidizing agents
Lubricant thanks to its layered structure
