Do you knnow amorphous graphite?

Argentina's Rosario Grain Exchange recently reported that wheat amorphous graphite are expected to continue to be influenced by international situations.

Amorphous graphite is usually formed by contact metamorphism of anthracite coal seams with metamorphic agents (e.g. tectonic stress, magma, etc.). The result is microcrystalline graphite, often referred to as amorphous graphite.

In a few cases, regional metamorphism can result in amorphous graphite if larger metamorphic agents come into contact with the anthracite coal seam. However, this regional metamorphism is less common and a single joint of graphite is usually found.

As amorphous graphite is made by the metamorphism of anthracite coal seams, graphite itself is a seam mineral (rather than a vein mineral).

As a joint mineral, amorphous graphite tends to have a higher ash content than other types of natural graphite. This is a result of the deposition of other organic matter by the metamorphic agent as it interacts with the anthracite. After all, coal production environments are often rich in organic matter. In addition, graphite material may be free or mechanically attached to quartz or other materials.

The added organic material makes amorphous graphite the least graphitic of the three natural graphites. It is relatively poorly crystalline, typically showing a graphite content of 20% to 40% after mining. In contrast, other forms of natural graphite can have graphite contents of up to 90%.

Although all natural graphite must be processed before it can be used, amorphous graphite must be processed most extensively because of its low graphite content.

What are the good uses of amorphous graphite?

While not suitable for all uses, amorphous graphite has many applications. Its high heat resistance makes it suitable for manufacturing and is commonly used in crucibles, molds, ladles, sinks and nozzles. Even the electrodes of many metallurgical furnaces and the lining of iron blast furnaces are made of amorphous graphite.

In steel production, amorphous graphite can be added as a recarburizer to improve strength and durability.

In other industries, amorphous graphite is used to make brake pads, clutch material, washers and pencil leads. Pencil leads are usually made of the lowest quality amorphous graphite, and this particular use is mainly in China.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected economies and chemical companies in many countries around the world. Measures such as extending holidays and resuming work were taken to control the development of the epidemic, and the normal operation of some chemical enterprises was also affected to some extent.

We provides high quality amorphous graphite with reasonable price. “In order to feedback to old customers, the company is still in full operations to provide amorphous graphite with competitive price.” said Olina, the sales manager.
