A synthetic graphite made by the Acheson process.
Note:
Reference to Acheson in combination with synthetic graphite honours the inventor of the first technical graphitization. Today the term Acheson graphite, however, is of historical interest only because it no longer covers the plurality of synthetic graphite.
