The Hugoniot of highly oriented pyrolytic graphite has been determined up to 83 GPa and the results imply a two-stage compression process. Firstly the graphite basal planes break abruptly at a threshold pressure, depending on the final pressure experienced by the graphite sample. Secondly the broken planes are compressed in a similar way to graphite compressed perpendicular to the basal planes. These process are investigated through recovered samples.
