Primary applications are crucibles and other refractory materials, lubricants, paints, oven polishes, lead pencils, electrodes, brake linings, batteries, powder metallurgy, fertilizers, glassmaking, conductive coatings, and casting coatings. Natural graphite has found use as a marking material (“lead”) in pencils, zinc-carbon batteries, brushes for electric motors, and various specialized applications. Crucibles, foundries, pencils, etc. are traditional uses of graphite. The most challenging graphite applications include refractories used in steel, concrete, and glass, expanded graphite seals, graphite-based lubricants, braids, brushes, brake linings, and more. It is also used in special applications such as in the nuclear industry, soil conditioners, and graphite foils used for sealing in the chemical and petrochemical industries and in the energy, engineering, and automotive industries. Graphite is known for its multiple functions such as refractory, lubricant, thermal conductor, electrical conductor, shield, electromagnetic pulse shield, corrosion shield, and pigment.
It is also used in nuclear reactors and Lithium-ion batteries used in electric vehicles that require high purity flake graphite in their anode material as a moderator.
