Our sealing materials made of flexible graphite ensure greater process reliability, significantly extended plant service life, minimization of fugitive emissions and downtime, and thus lower operating costs. Our customers benefit from the excellent material properties and quality of our materials for a wide range of sealing applications.
International Graphite is developing the first vertically integrated, standalone graphite production facility in Western Australia. Its mining tenements at Springdale are world class and its downstream processing facility, at Collie, brings together the best of international manufacturing technology and Australian process engineering knowhow.
The decision has Coosa County, 666 square miles and with a population just over 10,000, poised to benefit from a growing demand for batteries, including the lithium ion batteries of which graphite ...
Alabama Graphite plans to invest $124 million in constructing and equipping the graphite processing facility. Construction is expected to begin later this year, with the plant operating by the end of 2022.

Graphite is a stable form of naturally occurring carbon, also known as plumbago, blacklead or mineral carbon. Graphite is mostly used for refractory, battery, steel, expanded graphite, brake linings, foundry facings, and lubricants. Graphene, a naturally occurring ingredient in graphite, has unique physical properties and is one of the strongest known substances.
Fortunately, Sensient® Industrial Colors offers an alternative to talc and graphite: a high luster seed enhancer which, like talc and graphite, works to improve flowability, reduce bridging and provide a faster dry time. However, Pearl MAXX provides these benefits without risking harm to beneficial bacteria strains.
