High Purity Graphite

High purity graphite - a material which leaves a mark.

The very name “graphite” refers to one of the most recognizable qualities of high purity graphite – the fact that it can leave a mark on another surface. Graphite literally means “writing stone” from the Greek graphein which means to write or draw. Of course, while “lead” or more accurate graphite pencils are familiar to schoolchildren (and adults), graphite itself has a multitude of uses. Traditionally it has, arguably, been best-known as a lubricant. Over recent years, however, with the increasing reliance on electronic equipment, graphite has become more and more recognized for its usefulness to the electronics industry, in particular as a component of batteries, including lithium-ion batteries, which are ubiquitous in mobile phones.
