Metallurgical and Foundry
Silicon carbide is used for the de-oxidation and re-carburation of cast iron and steel in foundries. Metallurgical grade Silicon Carbide grain is a unique material for use in the production of iron and steel. It is used in the foundry industry for electric furnace production of gray, ductile, and malleable iron. It is an excellent source of carbon and silicon, promoting nucleation and rendering the iron more responsive to inoculation, deoxidizing the iron, which enhances furnace lining life.
In addition to Crystalline Silicon Carbide (97%+ SiC), we offer three supplementary grades of Metallurgical Silicon Carbide.
Metallurgical Silicon Carbide
Carbosil Metallurgical Silicon Carbide
High Grade Metallurgical 88-92% SiC. In addition to the applications mentioned above, Carbosil can also used as a deoxidizing agent in LD/BOF/ladle furnaces.
SubSiC85 Metallurgical Silicon Carbide
Medium Grade Metallurgical 82-88% SiC. In addition to the applications mentioned above, SubSiC85 can also used as a deoxidizing agent in LD/BOF/ladle furnaces.
SubSiC35 Metallurgical Silicon Carbide
Low Grade Metallurgical 30-40% SiC. SubSiC35 is supplied to the steel and foundry industry also in applications mentioned above.
Spherical Ceramic Product for Foundry Molds
CastBall is a spherical ceramic product and it has an application as an additive in foundry molds, where it comes to versatility and offers a superior performance in smelting of steel, iron, aluminum and others, with primary use in the "cold box. It is inert and contains no free silica or quartz.
