Global Artificial graphite market trend 2023-2026 What is Artificial graphite ? by Newsautbag

Risk aversion plunged on the positive news of the Russia-Ukraine talks. After several days of rising oil prices, the price of precious metals continued to fall. Domestic futures markets remain stable for the time being.

Back in international markets, WTI crude futures briefly dipped below $100 a barrel, while Brent crude hit its lowest intraday level in nearly two weeks. Spot gold briefly fell below $1,900 an ounce. Comex gold futures closed down 1.1 percent at $1,918.4 an ounce. Comex silver futures closed down 1.14 percent at $24.91 an ounce. "Recently, crude oil prices have been extremely sensitive to changes in geopolitical news." Traders believe that the current oil price is still in the broad impact, Ukraine will still be a premium in the case, although the market further decline, but should not be too pessimistic, it is recommended to wait and see for the time being. The Ukrainian premium is still there and there will be some volatility in the Artificial graphite market.

In a broad sense, all graphite materials obtained by organic carbonization and then graphitization at high temperature can be called artificial graphite, such as carbon fiber, pyrolytic carbon, foamed graphite, etc. In the narrow sense, artificial graphite usually refers to the block solid material obtained through the processes of batching, kneading, molding, carbonization and graphitization, using carbonaceous raw materials with low impurity content as aggregates, coal tar pitch, etc. as binders. Such as graphite electrodes, isostatic graphite, etc.

What is Production method of Artificial graphite ?

There are many ways to manufacture artificial graphite. The common method is to use powdered high-quality calcined petroleum coke as the main raw material, add asphalt as a binder, and then add a small amount of other auxiliary materials. After the various raw materials are combined, they are pressed into shape, and then treated in a non-oxidizing atmosphere at 2500-3000 ° C to make them graphitized.

What is the main characteristics of Artificial graphite ?

Crystal structure

Natural graphite: The crystal development is relatively complete, the degree of graphitization of flake graphite is more than 98%, and the degree of graphitization of natural microcrystalline graphite is usually below 93%.

Artificial graphite: The degree of crystal development depends on the raw material and the heat treatment temperature. Generally speaking, the higher the heat treatment temperature, the higher the degree of graphitization. The degree of graphitization of industrially produced artificial graphite is usually less than 90%.

organizational structure

Natural flake graphite: It is a single crystal with a relatively simple structure and only has crystallographic defects (such as point defects, dislocations, stacking faults, etc.), and exhibits anisotropic characteristics on the macroscopic level. The grains of natural microcrystalline graphite are small, the grains are disorderly arranged, and there are pores after removal of impurities, which shows isotropy on the macroscopic level.

Artificial graphite: It can be regarded as a multi-phase material, including graphite phase transformed from carbonaceous particles such as petroleum coke or pitch coke, graphite phase transformed from coal tar binder surrounding the particles, particle accumulation or coal tar pitch. The pores formed by the binder after heat treatment, etc.

physical form Natural graphite: usually exists in the form of powder and can be used alone, but it is usually used in combination with other materials.

Artificial graphite: There are many forms, including powder, fiber and block, while artificial graphite in the narrow sense is usually block, which needs to be processed into a certain shape when used.

With Tesla's new factory in Germany starting production, Volkswagen is just weeks away from finalizing plans for its 2 billion euro ($2.2 billion) electric car factory, which it hopes will bring it closer to its U.S. competitor. Tesla says it takes just 10 hours to produce a Model Y at its new factory in Grunheide, near the German capital, while Volkswagen takes three times as long to produce its ID.3 electric car. Volkswagen's productivity has been increasing by around 5 percent a year, said Christian Vollmer, head of the production at the Volkswagen brand.
The improvement in the efficiency of production vehicles will bring opportunities for Artificial graphite. In the future, the demand for Artificial graphite will become more and more extensive. Please feel free to contact us for the latest news on Artificial graphite.
