For years I’ve been asked this question. In the early days of the pencil I had no idea what it was, what the darkest point was etc. Then in 2007 after years of developing my business the market for such a pencil exploded. Now, many pencil buyers are going for a dark graphite pencil in order to get an extra sharp point.
What is graphite graphite?
When talking about pure graphite you might find the name “Graphite” is used. As most of you know, graphite is a fine powder of carbon atoms with traces of phosphorus. This is a natural substance which consists mainly of carbon plus a few trace metals. It is the same sort of substance that is used in the production of high-tech products such as watches, jewelry and other electronics.
What is the difference between Graphite, Aluminum Alloy, and Silicon Graphite?
Graphite is a metal. In addition to the normal carbon atoms used in many scientific and industrial applications, there are also a few other elements as lead, nickel, titanium and zinc. The difference between graphite and aluminum is in the density of the graphite particles. If a particle is too thick the graphite would be too hard and too brittle. Aluminum is not as dense, but still contains the appropriate amount of carbon atoms to become a solid.
How to know which Graphite is best for you?
Once you’re deciding on a graphite pencil, you’ll need to make sure it is actually made of the right material. Different pencils contain different quantities of carbon and graphite. These materials all have characteristics that determine their value.
The first thing to do is check out the color. Colors can mean a lot of things. Colors such as tan, black, gray, etc. are easy to distinguish. Different colors often have different attributes such as hardness, strength, or resistance of scratching.
In order to check a pencil’s color: First you need to know its thickness. The thicker the pencil the lighter the color and therefore the better it can stand up to wear. The easiest method is to simply draw a line through it; the pencil will stand up to normal wear. If it is thicker (roughly half inch thick) you’ll have to make it thicker with sandpaper, etc., to allow it to last.
For the next step look at the hardness. A pencil with a smooth, slightly raised surface is difficult to scratch. A sharpened pencil can cause more
