It is used at the production of pencils and the lubricating processes of moving parts due to its softness, and at the casting and refracter industry due to its resistance against heat and acids, at the manufacture of pots and laboratory materials. Black coloured fire proof dyes are generally made of graphite. It is used at the manufacture of electrodes, motor brushes, battery rods and the production of electronic devices due to its good electrical conductivity, too. Beside this is Graphite used as an additive for tyres, automobile brake linings, matches and motor oils, too.

The indfustry branches which consume graphite as a raw material are the pencil and casting industry. Dye manufacturers and iron-steel plants use imported graphite and graphite products. Fixed carbon of 60-70% is requested in the graphite used in the casting industry. This ratio is in the pencil industry more than 95%.
