Applications of graphite and carbon

Graphite is the purest form of carbon and stands out for being an excellent thermal and electrical conductor, surpassing other non-metals in these capacities. In addition, graphite is characterized by its flexibility, its refractory nature and its chemical inertia, qualities that make it an indispensable material in a wide variety of applications.
