In the industry, graphite materials have many similarities with carbon materials. In fact, many people often confuse the relationship between graphite materials and carbon materials. Carbon, graphite, and diamond are the three most common allotropes of carbon. Diamond is a mineral composed of carbon.
As the hardest substance in nature, diamond is known as the "king of hardness" and the "king of gems". Then, in the 1950s, synthetic diamonds were successfully produced under high temperature and high pressure in the United States. Synthetic diamonds have been widely used in our production and life.
Graphite is a non-metallic material. Graphite has natural graphite and artificial graphite. At present, artificial graphite is often used in the industry. The artificial graphite is further processed by carbon material of amorphous carbon classification, which improves the purity and resistance of carbon. Breaking compressive strength.
Carbon products are commonly used carbon products in the industry. Generally, the more crystalline components of graphite crystals are contained, the higher the purity of carbon, the higher the performance and price, the difference between graphite materials and carbon is not very large, many Carbon products are called graphite products.
