Graphite is a soft, slippery, greyish-black substance. It has a metallic luster
and is opaque to light. Graphite is a good conductor of heat and electricity.
Often graphite is simply named carbon. Under inert gas or vacuum graphite is
extremely temperature-resistant which makes it an interesting material for
high temperature applications.

By heating graphite up to 3000°C its properties are optimized. As a result,
heat treatment of graphite is a growing market and graphite has become an
important material for a variety of applications all over the world. Graphite is
often part of composite materials.
