Synthetic graphite is a manmade product in a process in which high quality Petroleum coke is heated to above 5432 degrees Fahrenheit and subjected to high pressure, this changes the state of the carbon molecules.
Synthetic graphite is composed by more than 98% carbon.
Among the extraordinary properties of the synthetic graphite are:
Stability at high temperatures
Low electrical resistivity
Diamagnetism (tends to repel magnetic fields)
Electrodes for electric arc furnaces
Lubricants that withstand very high temperatures
