Söderberg electrode paste
Elkem Carbon has developed a variety of electrode paste qualities for use in smelting processes world-wide. The properties of the baked electrode for a specific process requires a tailor made electrode paste to suit the conditions of the operating environment. This is crucial to ensure a successful operation.
Taphole and ladle materials
The use of ELTAP™ products contributes to controlled tapping of metal and closure of taphole, increased lifetime of materials due to high oxidation resistance and less taphole work.
