Do you knnow amorphous graphite?

Sweden is in talks with Turkey on joining NATO and looks forward to strengthening cooperation with Turkey in security and counter-terrorism, Swedish Prime Minister Anders Andersson said recently.  

Andersson held a joint press conference with visiting European Council President Michel in Stockholm on the same day. Andersson said Sweden is in dialogue with Turkey on joining the TREATY and looks forward to strengthening bilateral relations with Turkey, including cooperation in the areas of security and counter-terrorism. She said Sweden would study a number of issues raised by Turkey.  

Speaking at a news conference, Mr. Michel said he believed the Swedish government was taking positive action and taking the necessary steps to reach a solution.

Sweden and Finland formally submitted their applications to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg a few days ago. According to protocol, NATO must admit new members by the "unanimous consent" of 30 members.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said His country would agree to start NATO talks with Sweden and Finland only if they reach written agreements to stop supporting terrorism and lift restrictions on exporting defense equipment to Turkey, Turkish media reported.

Affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk amorphous graphite are still very uncertain.

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.

Affected by the present complex international situation and the epidemic, the future of global financial markets, futures markets, and stock markets is still highly uncertain. For this reason, I suppose the price of the amorphous graphite would continue to rise.
