Batteries and energy storage products still play a secondary role in traditional graphite applications. The demand for graphite in lithium-ion batteries is growing rapidly and is expected to ultimately become the number one market application for graphite. The anode market has expanded from approximately 85,000 tons in 2015 to over 160,000 tons in 2018 and is projected to reach 1,747,800 tons by 2028. The increasing size of the graphite market underscores its importance in the lithium-ion battery supply chain, which can no longer be underestimated. The diverse specifications and qualities of both natural and synthetic graphite make it challenging to pinpoint bottlenecks in the anode supply chain. The growth in the supply of both natural and synthetic anode production is vital to the expansion of lithium-ion battery production.

Vein Graphite

With a surge in the demand for vein graphite, as it is an integral part of modern industries manufacturing batteries, carbon brushes, lubricants, and plastics, among others. The unique properties that vein graphite possesses have proven to be invaluable to these industries. Dexterous DMCC is well-positioned to provide this high-quality, in-demand product.

Flake Graphite

Flake graphite is a naturally occurring form of graphite that is typically found as discrete flakes ranging in size from 50 to 800 μm in diameter and 1 to 150 μm thick. This form of graphite has a high degree of crystallinity, which equates to near-theoretical true density, high thermal and electrical conductivity, and low springback (excellent molding characteristics).

We offer, among other grades, high-quality, high-purity micronized natural flake graphite, available in tonnage quantities and standard sizes ranging from 5 microns to 80 microns or according to your specifications.

Typical purity level is 99.9%+ carbon.

Features include:

  • l Crystallin perfection
  • l High thermal and electrical conductivity
  • l Lubricating properties
  • l Chemically inert
  • l Resistance to oxidation and high temperatures
  • l High density
  • l Environmentally friendly
We also understand that consumers today are considering the environment in their purchasing decisions and so our customers need green supply chains
that are consistent with their commitments to sustainability. This was a major factor in the selection of our supplier, who has a long- and well-established history of environmental stewardship and of being a good corporate neighbour, as well as the major employer to the local community.
The Decarbonization of the energy storage and transportation sectors are gaining momentum globally. Graphite is the “new oil”. Demand for natural graphite is in the growth phase to support the manufacturing of energy storage equipment/high-quality batteries/lubricants and refractories. Ceylon Graphite has some of the purest natural graphite on the planet. Product certified as battery grade marketable We are building some of the cheapest and quickest to market natural graphite facilities in the world. Geographically best located for the Eastern markets –China, Japan and Korea.

Known under various names including crystalline vein, Plumbago, Sri Lankan graphite, and Ceylon graphite, “Sri Lankan” and “Ceylon” are commonly used for vein graphite since the island nation of Sri Lanka (formally Ceylon) is the only area to produce this material in commercial quantities. Serious mining and exportation of Ceylon graphite began about 1824; however, the unusual deposits of Ceylon have been known, and used locally, since the middle of the 1600s.
Vein graphite is a true vein mineral, as opposed to a seam mineral (amorphous graphite) or a mineral that is disseminated throughout the ore rock (as in flake graphite). All currently available commercial vein graphite is mined in Sri Lanka.
