Calcium-silicon is used mainly for steel production, as it allows inclusive treatments as well as deoxidising and de-sulphuring of liquid steel.
This process improves inclusive properties, the fluidity of continuum casting, transversal mechanical properties and use in factories.
Where can Calcium Silicon be used?
Given our extensive experience in providing these products and our ability to produce many chemical variations and granulometries perfectly fitted to different applications, it would not be risky to say that CaSi is widespread. Calcium-silicon can be used to protect the coatings of foundry pipelines used for centrifuge casting. It is also used in welding powder and pyrotechnics.
It is mainly used in the form of filled cable but also as grains for powder injection.
