Carbon is essential to all known living systems, and without it life as we know it could not exist. In elementary form carbon occurs in three modifications as diamond, graphite or fullerene. And each of these modifications has completely different properties. Diamond is one of the hardest materials and as clear as glass; graphite, on the other hand, is very soft and consists of matt black, scaly crystals.
The uses of carbon and its compounds are extremely varied. It can form alloys with iron, of which the most common is carbon steel. Graphite is combined with clays to form the 'lead' used in pencils used for writing and drawing. It is also used as a lubricant and a pigment, as a molding material in glass manufacture, in electrodes for dry batteries and in electroplating and electroforming, in brushes for electric motors and as a neutron moderator in nuclear reactors.
New areas of application and new product developments usually require precisely defined particle sizes. LONGLY grinding and dispersing machines are worldwidely used in the manufacturing process of the following carbon materials to reliably achieve these particle sizes -
