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. we also offer FerroSilicon and a spherical ceramic additive for foundry molds.

Spherical Ceramic Product for Foundry Molds

  • CastBall

    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¬Ě. It is inert and contains no free silica or quartz.

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.
