Description: Carbon black is a form of carbon that is used as a pigment and filler in rubber, plastics, inks, and paints. It is also a component of leaded gasoline. Artificial graphite is used in lubricants, as a lubricant additive, as a dry lubricant, in the production of steel, in the manufacture of electrodes for electrochemical cells, in the manufacture of graphite crucibles, and in the production of graphite rods for heat exchangers. Colloidal or semi-colloidal graphite is used as a lubricant additive and in the production of electrodes for electrochemical cells. Preparations based on graphite or other carbon in the form of pastes, blocks, plates or other semi-manufactures are used in the manufacture of electrodes for electrochemical cells.
