Expanded Graphite Market - Overview
Expanded graphite, or intumescent flake graphite, is produced from natural flake graphite by treating it with intercalation reagents such as acids, which move between the layers of graphite to form intercalated flake graphite. The intercalated flake graphite when subjected to high temperatures (around 1000°C) expands due to the breakdown of intercalation compounds, which form gaseous products that exerts pressure on graphite layers and pushes them apart. The intercalated flake graphite expands up to 300 times the original volume along with a huge increase in surface area, while the bulk density of the product reduces.
