We are among the largest producers of both 50% and 75% high-purity ferrosilicon. We provide our customers' steel with an increase in hardness and deoxidizing properties and improved strength and quality
An introduction to ferroalloys
Ferroalloys are master alloys containing iron and one or more non-ferrous metals that are used as the most economical way to introduce an alloying element in the steel melt. Their main benefits are an improvement in steel tensile strength, regular strength and resistance to wear and tear and corrosion. All of this is achieved by:
What is Ferrosilicon used for?
This product has many applications in steel production and casting. It contributes an increase in hardness and deoxidising properties but also with an improvement in strength and quality of iron steel products. Using it to manufacture inoculants and nodularisers can give specific metallurgical properties to the final products produced, which can be:
In fact, high-purity products are used in the production of grain-oriented (FeSi HP/AF Specialty Steel) and non-oriented electrical sheet and specialty steels requiring low levels of aluminium, titanium, boron and other residual elements.
Whether used for deoxidizing, inoculating, alloying, or as a source of fuel, our quality ferrosilicon products have stood the test of time.
