Flake graphite applications including but not limited to powder metallurgy, fuel cell bi-polar plates, coatings, thermal materials, friction moderators, electrically conductive materials, refractories, general lubricant applications, pencils, gaskets, rubber compounds, and other advanced polymer systems. Commercial grades are available in purities ranging from 80-99.9% carbon, and sizes from 2-800 microns.

Flake graphite is a type of natural graphite that is characterized by its flat, platy particle shape. It is formed in metamorphic rocks, which are rocks that have been subjected to heat and pressure over long periods of time.

Flake graphite is typically black or dark gray in color and has a distinct, greasy texture that makes it feel slippery to the touch. It is a soft, malleable material that can be easily shaped and molded, and is an excellent conductor of both heat and electricity.

Due to its unique properties, flake graphite is used in a variety of applications, including in the production of lubricants, batteries, fuel cells, and various industrial materials. It is also used as a critical component in the manufacture of refractory materials, which are used to line high-temperature furnaces and other equipment that is subjected to extreme heat.
