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 natural flake graphite market.
Natural flake graphite are widely used in advanced refractories and coatings in the metallurgical industry. Such as magnesia carbon bricks, crucibles, etc. Pyrotechnic material stabilizer in military industry, desulfurization accelerator in smelting industry, pencil lead in light industry, carbon brush in electrical industry, electrode in battery industry, catalyst in fertilizer industry, etc. After in-depth processing of flake graphite, graphite milk can be produced, which is used in lubricants, mold release agents, wire drawing agents, conductive coatings, etc. It can also produce expanded graphite, which is used as raw material for flexible graphite products, such as flexible graphite seals and flexible graphite composite products.
As a functional filler of coatings, flake graphite is mainly used in anti-corrosion coatings, fire-retardant coatings and conductive coatings.
As an anti-corrosion material, it is an anti-rust primer made of carbon black, talc and oil, which has good chemical and solvent corrosion resistance; if chemical pigments such as zinc yellow are added to the formula, the anti-rust effect is better.
Expandable graphite is used as a fireproof filler, which is a graphite interlayer compound obtained by chemical or electrochemical treatment with natural graphite flakes as raw materials. Under the condition of heat, the volume of expandable graphite expands rapidly (up to 300 times), which suffocates the flame, and at the same time generates expandable materials, which can isolate the flame, delay or interrupt the spread of the flame, and is non-flammable, with good flexibility and high surface energy. , the carbonized layer has good strength. However, the volume and amount of the expansion body should be selected appropriately. The test shows that 150um particles, 30% expansion ratio, and 5% dosage are the most suitable.
Graphite flakes can be directly used as carbon-based conductive fillers or made into composite conductive fillers for conductive coatings. However, due to the large amount of graphite flakes added, the performance of the coating will become brittle and its application will be limited. Therefore, measures should be taken to further improve the conductivity of graphite and effectively reduce the amount of graphite flakes added. The domestic Tianhua Chemical Machinery Research Institute has developed a high-temperature corrosion-resistant resin as the base material and large flake solid graphite flakes with strong electrostatic conductivity as the main aggregate, which has high body strength and good wear resistance.
The chopped fiber material with good resistance to deformation and cracking is a solvent-free thick-film conductive coating with functional fillers. The coating has the characteristics of anti-corrosion medium penetration, low curing residual stress, good resistance to matrix deformation and cracking, stable construction performance, and long-term static electricity conduction. It can be used for electrostatic conductive coating on the inner wall of crude oil storage tanks. According to data reports, electroless plating technology is used to coat graphite powder with metals, such as copper, nickel, silver, etc. to prepare composite conductive fillers, which are used in conductive coatings in an amount of 30%, which not only has good electrical conductivity, but also has further corrosion resistance. improve.

The negative electrode material is the carrier of lithium ions and electrons during the charging process of the battery and plays the role of energy storage and release. In the battery cost, the negative electrode material accounts for about 5%-15%, which is one of the important raw materials for lithium-ion batteries. The global sales of lithium battery anode materials are about 100,000 tons, mainly in China and Japan. According to the current growth trend of new energy vehicles, the demand for anode materials will also show a state of continuous growth. At present, the global lithium battery anode materials are still dominated by natural/artificial graphite, and new anode materials such as mesh carbon microspheres (MCMB), lithium titanate, silicon-based anodes, HC/SC, and metal lithium are also growing rapidly.
Our company provides anode materials and natural flake graphite. If you need to know more anode materials and natural flake graphite, please feel free to contact us.
