Graphite is one of the most common forms of carbon. Graphite with or without other chemicals or materials used for lubrication is commonly termed as graphite lubricants, which come under dry lubricant or solid lubricant. Although being in the solid phase, dry lubricants or solid lubricants are materials that reduce friction between two surfaces sliding against each other without the need for any liquid medium. Due to its superior property, such as high temperature resistance and low coefficient of friction, it is widely being used in various end-user industries like transportation, industrial application, and electric & electronics. Transportation is the largest end-user of graphite lubricant owing to its high lubrication property even at higher temperatures followed by industrial applications. The application of graphite lubricants is also increasing in electrical equipment due to the added advantage of conductivity. These lubricating solids can stay longer than unfortified oils, thus reducing the maintenance cost.
