Graphite is a natural mineral that is used for various purposes. It is found in a variety of products, including electric motor brushes, brake linings, glass manufacture, fertilizers, and zinc-carbon batteries. Moreover, it is often used as conductive coatings.

Colloidal graphite is a form of graphite that is suspended in a polymeric binder. It is usually used as an industrial lubricant and as a conductive coating. However, it is not available in silicone or refined petroleum oil.

Acheson developed colloidal graphite. It has high chemical stability and high temperature adhesion. Therefore, it can prevent metal-to-metal contact over a large area.

Despite its effectiveness, it cannot be removed with water or scraping. It is therefore an ideal lubricant for air or other environments. Moreover, it is non-toxic and safe to use.

In terms of exports, Brazil was the largest supplier in Latin America and the Caribbean. Moreover, it showed positive growth rates.

Mexico and Venezuela were the next two leading suppliers. They took a total share of X% and X%, respectively. The import price of artificial and colloidal graphite reached record highs in 2021.

Brazil was the fastest growing supplier of artificial graphite in the region. During the forecast period, it is expected to maintain its growth rate.

Argentina ranks second in terms of total imports. It is likely that the import price of artificial and colloidal graphite will retain its growth in the near future.

Water based colloidal graphite solutions are packaged in plastic jars and polypropylene. This type of colloidal graphite has been used as a lubricant and as a releasing agent for porous materials.
