Strength carries the world quality and controls the future
Solve the problem of "sticking neck" high-end graphite material leverages 1 billion output value
Sinosteel New Materials Co., Ltd. is a large high-tech enterprise engaged in research and development and production of special graphite materials with the leading technology and the most complete product specifications in China. Its products are widely used in nuclear power, semiconductor and photovoltaic and other key industries of the national economy. In 2020, Sinosteel New Material (Ningxia) Co., Ltd. settled in Yongning County and began to build a project of special graphite materials with an annual output of 20000 tons, including 10000 tons of large specification isostatic graphite and 10000 tons of high-end vibrating graphite, with an estimated total investment of 1.46 billion yuan.
Graphite is a very unique material in non-metallic materials. The production of special graphite materials requires a high temperature treatment of nearly 3000 ℃. It has good conductivity, corrosion resistance, thermal conductivity, high temperature resistance, high purity and other characteristics. Therefore, it is widely used in the high-temperature industry, the fourth generation nuclear reactor, semiconductor and other fields. Mobile phone molds and optical fiber equipment will also use a large number of special graphite materials. The annual production of 20000 tons of special graphite materials project of Sinosteel New Materials (Ningxia) Co., Ltd. will realize the digital and intelligent management of the whole process of storage, milling, kneading, roasting, and sales through the deep integration of industrial technology and information technology. Relying on the company's leading R&D strength, deep technical background and refined management, and adopting international advanced technology and process equipment, it will be built into a high-quality and large-scale isostatic graphite material production base with international first-class standards.
Graphite for functional material development: develop high-purity graphite, isostatic pressure graphite, fluorinated graphite, silicified graphite, sealing materials, graphite heat dissipation/conductive materials, polymer composites, etc. It is applied to the fields of electronics, new energy, national defense and military industry.
Our province is a large province of graphite resources, with resource reserves ranking the first in the country, concentrated resource distribution, excellent ore quality and outstanding resource advantages. The government work report proposes to accelerate the construction of a modern industrial system, vigorously develop strategic emerging industries, and extend the graphite deep processing industry chain, which points out the direction for the relevant graphite enterprises to promote technological iteration and industrial upgrading. Ye Yingchun, the deputy of the Provincial People's Congress, suggested that the graphite intensive processing industry should be developed in the mode of "government+universities+enterprises" to play the role of "key variables" in scientific and technological innovation.
It is reported that graphite has many physical and chemical properties, such as high temperature resistance, high thermal conductivity and conductivity, thermal shock resistance, flame resistance, high compressive strength, high corrosion resistance, low friction and self-lubrication. It is mainly used in coatings, powder metallurgy, steel making, refractory materials, lubricants and batteries. It is also used in large fuel cells, batteries and lightweight high-strength composites. By 2022, China's graphite output accounted for more than 60% of the global output.
