Thermal conduction is a transfer of heat from one body to another, through contact. Heat is transmitted through radiation, conduction and convection. Graphite can be segmented into natural graphite and synthetic graphite. Natural graphite is further sub-segmented into vein graphite, flake graphite, and micro crystalline (cryptocrystalline) graphite. Whereas, synthetic graphite is further sub-segmented into primary synthetic graphite, secondary synthetic graphite, and graphite fibers. The key properties are included low friction & self-lubrication, high thermal resistance, high electrical conductivity, low wettability by liquid metals, high thermal conductivity, low wettability by liquid metals, thermal conductivity & thermal resistance, and self-lubrication and high resistance. These properties are driving the high thermal conductive graphite material market.
