Fastmarkets has begun price assessments of single carbon-grade, fixed mesh-size flake graphite because the evolution of the market demands greater depth and detail of pricing data for the industry. It is also launching a tool to calculate prices for different grades of flake material.

Fastmarkets has strengthened its pricing of the natural graphite market with the launch of six flake graphite price assessments, in response to market feedback and changes in the industry.

Fastmarkets, and Industrial Minerals previously, has been pricing graphite for more than 30 years, with the first assessments introduced in 1988.
