Water-based colloidal graphite is a colloidal dispersion of ultra-fine graphite in an aqueous solution. Water based colloidal graphite product produces a smooth, dry coating with an extra-long wear lifespan that adheres well to most substrates. Furthermore, it develops suspension qualities with ease, reducing the need for stirring or agitation. This product's high coverage factor enables higher dilution ratios than commercially available alternatives. This ensures that the product is used effectively. The substance is smokeless and non-flammable, allowing it to be used in a cost effectively. It can also be used as a graphite additive in aqueous lubricating formulations for a variety of purposes.
The global water based colloidal graphite market is expected to benefit from rising demand for its use as a lubricant. The most significant advantage of using water based colloidal graphite instead of oil as a lubricant is that water based colloidal graphite leaves no sticky residue that may gather dust later. This is due to water based colloidal graphite's lubricating qualities, which are due to its weak covalent bonds, allowing graphite layers to "slide" on top of each other with little resistance. In applications where dust and filth are a challenge, water based colloidal it's often preferable to use a graphite-based lubricant. Locks, key slots, threaded rods, air compressors, hinges, and printer rails, for example, are ideal for a water based colloidal graphite-based lubrication.
On the other hand, strict rules & regulation regarding the usage of reusable barrels is hampering growth of the market. The new amendment allows the scotch whisky producers to use a wide variety of casks for maturation, including those previously used to age agave spirits, Calvados, barrel aged cachucha, shochu, and baijiu, as well as some other fruit spirits. This new amendment is expected to hamper the market demand for bourbon aged barrels from scotch whisky market, as the distillers have a wide range of options for used barrels apart from bourbon aged barrels.
