Elkem and Sinojit sign a Technical Co-operation Agreement

Sinojit agreement
Elkem Foundry Products signs a new technical co-operation agreement with Sinojit, the largest wind energy casting foundry globally.

In 2012, the first technical co-operation agreement was signed after many years of a close working relationship between Elkem and Sinojit.

During the course of these agreements, both companies have grown in size and competency and have risen to meet new challenges in large section casting production, such as low temperature impact properties and shrinkage.

The close co-operation has also generated metallurgical solutions for new alloys, such as Solution Strengthen Ferritic Ductile Iron, which is starting to become an industry standard for the windmill industry, making both Elkem and Sinojit the leaders in the production technology of these alloys in large section castings.
